At least two-thirds of the Fund's assets (excluding cash) will invest in equities or equity related securities of European companies, which are selected for their income and capital growth potential. To enhance the yield of the Fund, the Investment Manager selectively sells short dated call options over individual securities held by the Fund, generating extra income by agreeing strike prices above which potential capital growth is sold. The Fund may also invest in financial derivative instruments for the purposes of efficient portfolio management. The Fund may also hold cash on deposit.
