Fund Summary The Fund aims to provide capital growth by investing in equity and equity related securities of companies worldwide. The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in equity and equity related securities of companies worldwide. As the Fund is index-unconstrained it is managed without reference to an index. `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 typically holds 50 to 60 companies. The Investment Manager seeks to identify investment opportunities based on themes such as climate change, changes to population demographics and the rising importance of emerging market countries. The Fund may also invest in collective investment schemes, fixed income securities, warrants and money market instruments, and hold cash. The Fund may use derivatives with the aim of achieving investment gains, reducing risk and managing the Fund more efficiently.
