Unit price as at
The Fund is designed to grow capital by investing in a small number of growth companies, where we consider value is greatest and the opportunity of earnings growth is high.
We intend to invest mostly in listed UK and European smaller companies, whose potential we do not consider to be fully realised by the market.
By smaller companies, we mean companies we determine have a small Market Capitalisation (the total value of the company’s shares on issue) relative to the exchange that they are listed on.
This Fund has a risk rating of 5 out of 7 (high risk).
Please read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) and Statement of Investment Policy and Objectives (SIPO) for more information, including details of the risks associated with this fund.
