Key investment risks:
• The Fund invests at least 75% in equities or equity-related instruments of real estate companies or REITs (or their equivalents) having their registered office in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or United Kingdom if not part of the EEA and listed or traded on a regulated market, which derive the main part of their revenue from engaging in


real estate businesses in Europe.
• Investments involve varying degree of investment risks (e.g. liquidity, market, economic, political, regulatory, taxation, financial, interest rate, hedging and currency risks). In extreme market conditions, you may lose your entire investment.
• Investments in financial derivatives instruments (“FDIs”) (such as futures, options, forwards and warrants) involve specific risks (e.g. counterparty, liquidity, leverage, volatility, valuation and over-the-counter transaction risk). The Fund may use FDIs to reduce risk and to manage the Fund more efficiently.
• The Fund’s investments are concentrated in European property sector and may subject to higher concentration risk.
• The Fund may invest in Eurozone (in particular Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece and Spain) securities and may suffer from European sovereign debt crisis risk.
• In respect of distribution shares classes of the Fund, the directors may at its discretion pay distributions out of gross income and net realised/ unrealised capital gains while charging/ paying all or part of the fees and expenses to the capital, resulting in an increase in distributable income for the payment of distributions and therefore, the Fund may effectively pay distributions out of capital. This amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor's original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment, and may result in an immediate reduction of the Fund’s net asset value per share.
