Objective

To achieve a return in excess of the money markets, in the Sub-Fund Reference Currency, over a three year time horizon. To achieve the above objective, the Investment Manager will adjust asset allocation and country exposures to reflect market conditions and opportunities. This top-down positioning will be combined with bottom-up security selection. The Sub-Fund may invest in money market instruments, deposits with credit institutions, notes, bonds, convertible bonds, equities and warrants. The Sub-Fund portfolio may, at times, be concentrated in one or several types of assets and/or countries.
