1. Objective

    The American Fund aims to produce capital growth over the long term. To invest principally in equities of companies which are listed, quoted, traded, incorporated, domiciled or conduct a significant portion of their business in the United States of America. Such investment may be direct or indirect and the portfolio will be concentrated. The Fund’s share price can be volatile due to movements in the prices of the underlying holdings and the basis on which the Fund is priced.

    The value of investments and any income from them may go down as well as up and you or your client may not get back the amount originally invested.
