The Fund aims to achieve capital growth through investment in an internationally diversified portfolio of equities. In recognition of the limitations of geographically determined asset allocations in today's global economy, the Fund's assets are allocated by global themes which track long term worldwide growth trends that are largely independent of any one region or market. The Fund then invests in companies that fit these themes. The current five themes are: Corporate Restructuring, Intellectual Property & Excellence, Pricing Power, Global Convergence and Security of Supply.
