Fund Summary The Fund aims to provide capital growth by investing in equity and equity related securities of small-sized US companies. The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in equity and equity related securities of small-sized US companies. These are companies that, at the time of purchase, are similar in size to those comprising the bottom 20% by market capitalisation of the North American equity market. The Fund may also invest in small-sized Canadian companies. The small cap universe is an extensive, diverse and constantly changing area of the North American market. The investment manager believes smaller companies offer investors exposure to some niche growth areas that, often, cannot be accessed through large companies. They also tend to grow more rapidly than larger companies. The Fund may also invest in other equity and 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.
