The objective of the Fund is to target capital growth over the longer-term. The Fund's investment objective will be achieved through investment primarily in United Kingdom (UK) listed companies. The Fund may also invest in companies listed on the European markets to the value of 20% of the Net Asset Value of the Fund. To the extent that any such investments give rise to any currency exposure (for example due to exchange rate fluctuations between the Base Currency and the currency of a particular position), the Fund may utilise foreign exchange (FX) swap contracts to hedge against such exposure.
