Fund Summary The objective of the Sub-Fund is to achieve capital growth over at least 5 years. The Sub-Fund will invest at least 70% in equity and equity-related securities (namely, common and preferred stock, convertible securities, warrants and rights) of European smaller companies, being generally companies within the market capitalisation range of the MSCI Europe Small Cap Index.

In certain documents, we may wish to show the performance of the Sub-Fund as compared to some of our peers. In such a case, we will compare the pe
