The Fund aims to provide a return, from a combination of capital growth and income over the long term.
Performance target: To outperform the MSCI Zhong Hua 10/40 Index by 2.5% per annum, before the deduction of charges, over any 5 year period.
The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in a concentrated portfolio of shares (also known as equities) of companies, of any size, in any industry, in China or Hong Kong. Companies will have their registered office in or do most of their business (directly or through subsidiaries) in this region. The Fund may invest up to 50% of its assets in China A-Shares. The portfolio may be concentrated in terms of its number of holdings and/or the size of its largest holdings.
The Fund may also invest in other assets including companies outside this region, depositary receipts, 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 MSCI Zhong Hua 10/40 Index, which is broadly representative of the companies in which it may invest, as this forms the basis of the Fund's performance target. The investment manager has discretion to choose investments for the Fund with weightings different to the index or not in the index.
As an additional means of assessing the performance of the Fund, the IA China/Greater China sector average, which is based on a peer group of broadly similar funds, may also provide a useful comparator.
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.
