The investment objective of the Pan European Alpha Fund is to seek long-term capital appreciation through exposure primarily to European equities. At least two-thirds of the Fund's total assets (after deduction of cash) will be invested in equity securities and equity related instruments (excluding convertible debt securities) of companies that are domiciled in Europe (including the UK) or derive the majority of their revenue from business activities in this region. Fund will actively use derivatives, which will include both long and covered short directional positions and pairs trades.
