The American Select Fund (Columbia Threadneedle) aims to achieve growth through capital gains and income by investing in companies domiciled in North America or which have significant North American operations. These include smaller and emerging growth companies, those with potential for merger or takeover, those with new management recovery situations and exploration companies. There will be no particular sector specialisation. The 'Select' investment approach means that the fund has the flexibility to take significant stock and sector positions which may lead to increased levels of volatility. The fund has a concentrated portfolio which leads to increased levels of stock specific risk. On occasion, the fund may invest in fixed interest securities and money market instruments, when deemed appropriate. This fund invests some of its assets outside the eurozone so a currency risk arises for a euro investor. This fund is managed by Columbia Threadneedle.
