The objective is to achieve capital growth by buying shares in companies whose recovery potential is not appreciated by the market and to sell them when this potential is recognised. The nature of unrecognised recovery potential may be based on macro economic, industry, sector specific or stock specific issues. Stock selection will involve the identification of a catalyst capable of triggering and sustaining a recovery in each specific stock selection. The fund has the flexibility to invest in companies of all sizes and to hold up to 20% in European shares; it will be benchmarked against the FTSE All-Share Index.
