BGF Global SmallCap X2 GBP Hdg

The Global SmallCap Fund seeks to maximise total return.
The Fund invests globally at least 70% of its total assets in the equity securities of smaller capitalisation companies. Smaller capitalisation companies are considered companies which, at the time of purchase, form the bottom 20% by market capitalisation of global stock markets. Although it is likely that most of the Fund’s investments will be in companies located in the developed markets of North America, Europe and the Far East, the Fund may also invest in the developing markets of the world. Currency exposure is flexibly managed.
