The investment objective of the Japanese Smaller Companies Fund is to seek long-term capital appreciation by investing at least two-thirds of its total assets in smaller Japanese companies. For this purpose, companies falling within the bottom 25% of their relevant market by way of market capitalisation are considered to be smaller companies. The Fund may invest in OTC markets. Such markets are geographically de-centralised and may be operated and regulated differently from other markets and accordingly may be subject to slightly more risks.

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.
