The Fund aims to provide high income with some long-term capital growth by investing predominantly in companies incorporated in a member state of the EEA or Switzerland or in companies which derive a predominant proportion of their revenues or profits from these countries or which are predominantly operating in them. Investments will be made primarily in the equities of large or mid-sized companies which pay high dividend yields and which the ACD considers to offer prospects for long-term growth.
