100% – units of the FTGF Royce US Small Cap Opportunity Fund (starting from 03.08.2018)

The FTGF Royce US Small Cap Opportunity Fund underlying foreign subfund invests at least 70% of its Net Asset Value in a diversified portfolio of equity securities issued by small-cap and micro-cap US Companies (i.e., US Companies with stock market capitalisations not greater than that of the largest company (based on market capitalisation) in the Russell 2000 Index at the time of its most recent reconstitution) that are listed or traded on Regulated Markets in the United States. While investing the assets of the fund the manager of the FTGF Royce US Small Cap Opportunity Fund uses fundamental analysis and invests in the equities that are valued below their estimated intrinsic value.

investor's profile

The subfund is targeted at an investor who:

  • is looking for investment products with high return potential typical of the small and micro enterprise segments;
  • is looking for a fund with an active, selective management style (careful selection of stocks that offer value), investing in significantly undervalued U.S. companies from the small and micro segments, with strong balance sheets and above-average cash flows;
  • accepts high investment risk.

This is an investor who expects a significantly higher rate of return in the long term than from bank deposits, cash funds, money market, debt and mixed funds, and is ready to incur significant losses in the short term in anticipation of long-term returns.
