INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES

The Fund aims to deliver long-term capital appreciation by investing in European equities.

The Fund employs a high conviction, bottom-up, low turnover, research driven strategy with a focus on companies that exhibit sustainable long- term growth. Rigorous fundamental analysis is utilised to identify companies believed to have intrinsic value greater than market valuations.

ESG considerations are essential to the investment process, the Fund does not invest in areas such as gambling, weapons, or tobacco and engages in active dialogue with companies to foster good ESG practices and improve the sustainability profile of companies in the long-term. The Fund also avoids commodity or energy stocks and does not generally invest in purely financial sectors as these are deemed to be closely integrated with a slow-growing economy. The Fund favours large-capitalised stocks with adequate free-float liquidity and more concentrated business models over those widely diversified. Fund Manager, Christian Diebitsch, joined Heptagon in 2014 and has been managing European Equity funds with the same investment style since 2007.
