The Fund aims to achieve long-term capital growth primarily through investment in shares of companies around the world. The Fund will have a blend of investments and will be unrestricted in its choice of companies either by size or industry, or in terms of the geographical make-up of the portfolio. The Fund will focus investment on stocks deemed to be of high quality which are typically associated with global brands or franchises.
A different benchmark was used prior to 2011. Benchmark was changed for more accurate representation of the Fund’s investible universe.
The computation basis of the performance is based on the calendar year end, NAV-To-NAV, with dividend reinvested.
These figures show by how much the share class increased or decreased in value during the calendar year/performance periods being shown. Performance data has been calculated in share class currency, including ongoing charges and excluding subscription fee (initial charge) and redemption fee (if any) you might have to pay. If the currency shown differs from your home currency, returns may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. We recommend that you seek independent financial advice to ensure this Fund is suitable for your investment needs.
Where no past performance is shown there was insufficient data available in that year to provide performance.
No representation is being made that any investment will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those achieved in the past, or that significant losses will be avoided.
