Fund Summary The Fund aims to provide capital growth and income by investing in equity and equity related securities of medium-sized US companies. The Fund invests at least 70% of its assets in equity and equity related securities of medium-sized US companies. These are companies that, at the time of purchase, are similar in size to those comprising the bottom 40% by market capitalisation of the North American equity market. The Fund focuses on three types of companies that the Investment Manager believes: demonstrate strong growth trends and improving levels of cash; generate dependable earnings and revenues; and are undergoing positive change that is not being recognised by the market. The Fund may also invest in other equity or equity related securities, collective investment schemes, warrants and money market instruments, and hold cash. The Fund may use derivatives with the aim of reducing risk and managing the Fund more efficiently.
