Objective

The Fund aims to achieve above average capital growth through investing in companies domiciled in North America or which have significant North American operations. These include smaller and emerging growth companies, those with potential for merger or takeover, those with new management recovery situations and exploration companies.

The Select investment approach means that the Fund has the flexibility to take significant stock and sector positions which may lead to increased levels of volatility.
