The Fund aims to provide capital growth over the long term.
Performance target: To outperform the MSCI AC Asia Pacific ex Japan Index by at least 2% per annum, before the deduction of charges, over any 5 year period.
The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in a concentrated portfolio of shares (equities) and equity-related securities of companies, of any size, in any industry, in the Asia Pacific region (including the Indian subcontinent and Australasia, but excluding Japan). 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 20% of its assets in China A-Shares.
The Fund may also invest in other assets including companies outside this region, 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 MSCI AC Asia Pacific ex Japan Index, which is broadly representative of the companies in which it may invest, as this forms the basis of the Fund's performance 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.
