Objective

The fund aims to achieve long term capital growth from a portfolio primarily made up of the shares of continental European companies. The portfolio is likely to have a bias towards medium sized and smaller companies. However, the ACD is not restricted in the choice of company either by size or industry, or in terms of the geographical split of the portfolio, which is largely determined by the availability of attractive investment opportunities rather than the outlook for each market.
