The Major Markets High Value focuses on the world’s most attractively valued major equity markets. The objective of the fund is to outperform the Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) World Index over holding periods of three to five years.

The Global Advantage Funds seek to gain from the benefits offered by global diversification as opposed to investment in a single national market, both in terms of opportunities for profit and limitation of risk. The funds are aimed at investors who are aware that historically stocks have outperformed both bonds and cash in the long run, but who are prepared to accept the periodical fluctuation of equity markets in general and the above-average risk of emerging markets in particular.
