Objective

At least two-thirds of the sub-fund's assets will be invested in shares of U.S. and Canadian companies. For the remaining third of net assets, the sub-fund may also invest in shares in companies from countries other than those listed above. The sub-fund may invest up to 10% of its net assets in units of UCITS or other UCIs. Furthermore, the sub-fund may hold cash on an ancillary and temporary basis and may also, within legal limits, use derivative products to hedge or optimise portfolio exposure. The portfolio is managed on a systematic basis without using a reference benchmark.
