Objective: To provide capital growth by investing principally in quoted equities on an international basis. The emphasis of investment will be in the united Kingdom, Continental Europe, North America and Japan, but a proportion of the fund can also be invested in other areas.
Global Growth funds strive to seek out those companies around the globe that are delivering high and accelerating earnings growth. They will do this in a variety of ways: some will look at the macro-economic environment around the globe and prioritise those companies that are operating in regions with accelerating GDP. Others may take a thematic approach, seeking out emerging industries such as technology or alternative energy, or stocks that benefit from global trends such as climate change.
