Europe Excluding UK
FTSE AW Dv Europe Ex UK TR GBP
The Fund aims to provide an above-average income return (gross of fees) from its equity investments (i.e. shares), compared to the income produced by European equity markets (excluding the UK) as represented by FTSE World Europe Ex UK Index (i.e. a level of income which exceeds that produced by the constituents of the index), without sacrificing capital growth (i.e. the value of the assets held by the Fund) over the long term (5 or more consecutive years beginning at the point of investment). In seeking to achieve its investment objective, the Fund will invest at least 70% of its total assets in the equity securities (i.e. shares) or equity-related investments (i.e. other investments whose value is related to equities) of companies domiciled in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in Europe excluding the UK.
