The fund aims to achieve a high income yield with some long term capital growth in Sterling terms. The predominant investment policy of the Fund is to invest directly in a concentrated portfolio of approximately 30 to 60 stocks of companies incorporated in Continental Europe and Ireland (excluding the UK) and whose securities are listed on or traded on an eligible market. The Fund may also invest in companies incorporated outside of European markets and whose revenue is derived substantially from European markets or whose assets are substantially in European markets.
