The objective of this Sub-fund is to provide its investors with capital growth, principally by means of investments in equities and other similar instruments issued by companies having their registered office in Europe (excluding the United Kingdom), or having a predominant proportion of their assets or interests in this geographical area, or which operate predominantly in or from those countries. The investment strategy of the Sub-fund focuses on companies whose growth prospects, according to the managers analysis, are attractive over a horizon of at least 3 to 5 years and do not depend on the economic cycle, and which have worthwhile earnings and valuation ratios.
