MS INVF Global Brands ZH GBP

The Global Brands Fund seeks an attractive long term rate of return, measured in US Dollars, through investment principally in equity securities of companies in the world's developed countries. The Fund will invest in a concentrated portfolio of companies whose success the Company believes depends on intangible assets (for example, but not limited to, brand names, copyrights or methods of distribution) underpinning a strong business franchise. The Fund may also invest, on an ancillary basis, in preference shares, debt securities convertible into common shares or preference shares, warrants on securities and other equity linked securities.
