The objective of the Fund is to obtain long-term capital growth through investment primarily in Central and Eastern Europe. The scheme will invest primarily in companies which operate or reside in Central or Eastern Europe including Russia, the Baltic States, all other member states of the former USSR and Turkey. The scheme may also invest in shares in investment trusts and other closed or (to the extent permitted by the Regulations) open ended funds which are themselves dedicated to investments in the markets and countries listed above. The scheme shall be free to invest in companies which are established in countries outside those identified above which, in the Manager's opinion, conduct a material proportion of their business(es) in one or more of those countries and, in any event, the scheme shall be permitted to invest an aggregate of up to 10 per cent of its total assets at the time of investment in companies which do not necessarily conduct a material proportion of their business(es) in one or more of those countries but which reside in Israel, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.
