The fund seeks to achieve medium to long term capital growth. The generation of income is secondary to the primary objective of maximising capital growth. The Portfolio will invest principally in equity securities of companies that are listed or traded on Other Regulated Markets in Africa (excluding South Africa) or of companies that are listed or traded on Regulated Markets that carry out a substantial portion of their business (meaning not less than 51%) in Africa (e.g. mining exploration companies listed on the Alternative Investment Market in the UK, the Toronto Stock Exchange or the Johannesburg Stock Exchange). Currently, the stock exchanges in the countries set out below are considered to constitute eligible Other Regulated Markets in Africa (excluding South Africa): Namibia, Zambia, Ghana, Mauritius, Botswana, Nigeria, Kenya, Morocco and Egypt.
