Investment Objectives

The fund’s objective is to achieve long-term capital growth. It invests primarily in equity securities of smaller companies located around the world.

Investment Strategy

The portfolio adviser follows a bottom up approach. Following a core investment philosophy, the portfolio adviser seeks to build a concentrated portfolio focusing on companies with strong business franchises, purchasing an ownership stake only when the market price deviates from a reasonable estimate of intrinsic value offering an adequate margin of safety.
