Fund Summary The Fund aims to provide capital growth by investing in equity and equity related securities of European companies, excluding the UK. The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in a concentrated range of equity and equity related securities of European countries, excluding the UK. The Fund typically holds 35 to 60 companies. 'Alpha' funds invest in companies in which the investment manager has a high conviction that the current share price does not reflect the future prospects for that business. The Fund may also invest in other equity and equity related securities including UK companies, collective investment schemes, fixed income securities, warrants and money market instruments, and hold cash. The Fund may use derivatives with the aim of reducing risk or managing the Fund more efficiently.
