In their own words

"The fund seeks to deliver a compound rate of return greater than 10% per annum after fees and costs over the long term (typically 5 to 7 years). We expect the fund will exhibit lower risk of capital loss than broader global equity markets over the long term. The fund invests in what we consider to be 25 to 35 global exceptional companies with strong wealth creation credentials."
