INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES

<p>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 12 billion of assets under management. The strategy primarily invests in US micro-capitalization companies with good growth potential and with a market capitalization within the same range at the time of investment as those included in the Russell Microcap® Growth Index. Investment decisions are based on the belief that fundamentally strong companies are more likely to generate superior earnings growth on a sustained basis and are more likely to experience positive earnings revisions. Investment decisions involve evaluating a company’s competitive position, industry dynamics, identifying potential growth catalysts and assessing the financial position of the relevant company.</p>
