Fund Objective

The Sub-Fund’s investment objective is to achieve maximum capital
appreciation by investing primarily in lon and short postions of publicly-traded companies globally, including technology stocks. The long strategy involves investing primarily in equity securities of U.S. and non - U.S. companies that Alkeon believes are well positioned to benefit from demand for their products or services, including companies that can innovate or grow rapidly relative to their peers in their markets; the "Growth Companies".

The strategy also involves taking short positions in securities when the Investment Manager believes that the market price of a security is above its estimated intrinsic or fundamental value (weak balance sheets, deteriorating fundamentals, poor or negative free cash flow generation).

The objective of the MS ALKEON UCITS Fund is to provide shareholders with a return linked to the performance of the ALKEON Investment Strategy through the use of total return swaps.
