The fund aims to achieve long-term capital growth. The fund will principally invest in the shares of companies listed, quoted or traded in the United States of America. The fund can also invest in the shares of companies which have headquarters in the USA or carry out a significant part of their activities in the USA and are quoted on a regulated market outside the USA. The fund has discretion in its choice of investments. It is expected that the fund will invest primarily in medium and large companies. It will not be restricted by company size or industry. The fund may invest in derivatives (financial instruments whose value is linked to the expected price movements of an underlying asset) to meet its investment objective, to protect the value of the fund, reduce costs and/or generate additional income. The fund may invest in fixed interest securities which are investments (which could be issued by a company, a government or another entity) that pay a fixed level of income or interest.
