Investment Objectives

This fund’s objective is to increase the value of your investment over the long term by investing in companies in Western Europe and the UK. As part of the investment objective, this fund invests primarily in companies that are listed on recognized exchanges and that will likely benefit from merger activity and reduced trade barriers as European markets and economies restructure. It may also invest in fixed income securities issued by governments in Western Europe and the United Kingdom.

Investment Strategy

These are the strategies the portfolio manager uses to try to achieve the fund’s objective: examines the financial information of individual companies to identify sound potential investments; employs a fundamental bottom-up investment approach that emphasizes growth and stability of earnings while adhering to a strict valuation discipline; seeks out companies with strong, consistent and growing free cash generation.
