The Sub-Fund aims to provide capital growth by investing predominantly in equities and equity related securities issued by companies having their registered office in continental Europe (ex. UK), or having a predominant proportion of their assets or interest in this geographical area. The Sub-Fund focuses on companies whose growth prospects, in the manager's opinion, are attractive over a horizon of at least 3 to 5 years and do not depend on the economic cycle.
