FUND OBJECTIVES AND FOCUS
The fund aims to offer superior returns over the medium to longer term by investing in value-type shares. The fund invests in shares across all industry sectors, focusing specifically on "value-type" shares. These are companies currently deemed undervalued relative to the rest of the stock market. Factors that influence share selection are companies that are cheap relative to their earnings/growth potential as well as elements such as management changes, rationalisation and improved operating conditions. Derivatives may be used for risk management purposes.
