Global Select

The fund's objective is to achieve above average capital growth through investment in equities issued by companies worldwide. The portfolio may be concentrated geographically or with respect to stock and sector positions which may lead to increased levels of volatility. If desirable, it may further invest in other securities (including fixed interest securities, other equities and money market securities).
