The Fund aims to provide a sustainable level of income, with a dividend yield higher than that of the FTSE EPRA Nareit Developed Asia Dividend Plus Index, plus the potential for capital growth over the long term (5 years or more).
The Fund invests at least 75% of its assets in a concentrated portfolio of shares (equities) and equity-related securities of real estate investment trusts (REITs) and companies, of any size, which invest in property, in the Asia Pacific region. Securities will derive the main part of their revenue from owning, developing and managing real estate which in the view of the Investment Manager offer prospects for above average dividends or reflect such prospects.
The Fund may also invest in other assets including investment grade government bonds, cash and money market instruments.
The investment manager may use derivatives (complex financial instruments) to reduce risk or to manage the Fund more efficiently.
The Fund is actively managed with reference to the FTSE EPRA Nareit Developed Asia Dividend Plus Index, which is broadly representative of the securities in which it may invest, as this forms the basis of the Fund's income target and the level above which performance fees may be charged (if applicable). The investment manager has discretion to choose investments for the Fund with weightings different to the index or not in the index, but at times the Fund may hold investments similar to the index.
The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested.
Potential investors must read the prospectus, and where relevant, the key investor information document before investing.
