Fund Provider M&G Securities Ltd
Fund Summary The Fund aims to provide a higher total return (the combination of capital growth and income) than that of the EMIX Smaller European Companies Index, net of the Ongoing Charges Figure, over any five-year period. The Fund will invest at least 80% in the equities of European smaller companies, from the bottom third (by total market capitalisation) of all publicly listed equities in Europe including the UK. The Fund has a concentrated portfolio and usually holds fewer than 45 stocks. The Fund uses an investment process that is based on the fundamental analysis of competitively advantaged companies with sustainable business models. Sustainability considerations play an important role in determining the investment universe and assessing business models. Companies that are assessed to be in breach of the United Nations Global Compact principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption are excluded from the investment universe. Companies involved in the production of tobacco and controversial weapons are also excluded. The Fund may also invest in collective investment schemes, including funds managed by M&G, other transferable securities and warrants. Cash and near cash may be held for ancillary purposes and derivatives may be used for efficient portfolio management and hedging purposes.
