The Fund seeks to achieve long term capital growth by investing in Nomura Funds Ireland – Global High Conviction Fund (“Target Fund”), which invests primarily in global equity securities.

As with any equity funds, investors are advised to take note of the higher volatility nature of global equity securities.
