The fund will seek long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in Kuwaiti domiciled, listed equities. From time-to-time, and not ordinarily exceeding 20% of the NAV of the Fund, the Investment Manager may choose to invest in non-Kuwaiti stocks that he deems to have significant exposure to the Kuwaiti economy. To help measure the success of the Fund, its performance will be measured against the Benchmark (S&P Kuwait Custom Index).
