George Boyd-Bowman

Objective

The investment objective of the Fund is to generate capital growth by investing predominantly in a concentrated portfolio of Northern American securities which may include Canada as well as the US. Other eligible asset classes are collective investment schemes, other transferable securities, cash or near cash, deposits and money market instruments. It is anticipated that derivatives instruments and forward transactions may be used by the ACD for efficient portfolio management. It is the intention to be near-fully invested at all times, however the Fund has the facility to take tactical positions in cash or near cash should the ACD feel it appropriate.
