The investment objective of the Sub-fund is to achieve long-term growth in the share price through capital appreciation of the underlying portfolio. The Sub-fund aims to outperform the FTSE Developed Europe Small Cap Index (EUR) benchmark before charges. It seeks to achieve this objective primarily through investment in small cap European equities and equity related securities of corporations domiciled or listed in European countries (which include the UK and the emerging markets of Europe) or companies that derive a significant proportion of their revenues or profits from European operations or have a significant proportion of their assets there. The Sub-fund is actively managed. The benchmark is also used as a reference point for portfolio construction and as a basis for setting risk constraints. In order to achieve its aim, the Sub-fund will take positions whose weightings diverge from the benchmark or invest in securities which are not included in the benchmark. The investments of the Sub-fund may deviate significantly from the components and their weightings in the benchmark. Due to the active nature of the management process, the Sub-fund's performance profile may deviate significantly from that of the benchmark over the longer term. Where Share Classes are denominated in a different currency to that of the reference currency of the Sub-fund, a currency specific benchmark will typically be used for performance comparison purposes. This will either be the benchmark of the Sub-fund expressed in another currency or a different currency specific benchmark with similar characteristics. The Share Class benchmark is specified in the relevant KIID.
