INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES

The investment objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth. The Fund’s Sub-Investment Manager, Driehaus Capital Management LLC, is a privately-held boutique asset management firm located in Chicago, USA. The firm was founded in 1982 and has USD 17.3 billion of assets under management.

The investment style is a bottom-up growth equity investment approach. The strategy exploits equity market inefficiencies that materialize following inflection points, combining fundamental, behavioural, and macro analysis as well as integrating environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) criteria as part of the investment research process. The approach focuses on companies with strong or improving ESG attributes and growth opportunities tied to social and environmental solutions, and robust governance structures. It also includes evaluating fundamental factors relating to the companies such as the competitiveness of the relevant industry, the company’s business model, recent and projected financial metrics and upcoming product releases to be introduced by the company. Macro-economic or country specific analyses are also utilised to evaluate the sustainability of a company’s growth rate.
