Pack refers to JP Morgan Fleming’s investment track record as
excellent and categorises this fund’s risk factor as medium to high.
He says: ” The literature is informative but bland. The charges are
slightly high in the current climate of cost awareness while the
adviser remuneration is average to high.”

the European market has a possible uncertain short-term future. The
two managers are running a very wide mandate which could cause
problems in the short term.”
