Fund objective
This Fund’s investment objective is long-term growth of capital. It pursues its objective by investing Primarily in equity securities of companies located anywhere in the world and selected for their growth potential. The Fund will invest Primarily in securities of companies that the relevant Sub-Investment Adviser believes have a life sciences orientation. Generally speaking, the “life sciences” relate to maintaining or improving quality of life. Thus, companies with a “life sciences orientation” include companies engaged in research, development, production or distribution of products or services related to health and personal care, medicine or pharmaceuticals. Such companies may also include companies that the relevant Sub-Investment Adviser believes have growth potential mainly as a result of particular products, technology, patents or other market advantages in the life sciences. The Fund will invest at least 25% of its total assets, in the aggregate, in the following industry groups: health care; pharmaceuticals; agriculture; cosmetics/personal care; and biotechnology. The Fund may employ investment techniques and instruments for investment purposes, such as trading in futures, options and swaps and other financial derivative instruments, subject to a limit of up to 10% of its net asset value and subject to the conditions and within the limits from time to time laid down by the Central Bank. No more than 10% of the net asset value of the Fund may be invested in securities traded on any one Developing Market and the aggregate amount of the Fund which may be invested in securities traded on the Developing Markets is 20% of the net asset value of the Fund.

Risk statistics
Alpha
?Alpha is a measure of a fund's over- or under-performance by comparison to its benchmark. If the Alpha is 5, the fund has outperformed its benchmark by 5%; so the greater the Alpha, the greater the outperformance.
-0.4
Beta
?Beta estimates a fund's volatility by comparison to that of its benchmark. A fund with a beta close to 1 means that the fund will move generally in line with the benchmark. Higher than 1 and the fund is more volatile than the benchmark and vice versa.
1.06
Sharpe
?This commonly-used measure calculates the level of return over and above the return of a notional risk-free investment, such as cash. The difference in returns is then divided by the fund's volatility. The resulting ratio is an indication of the amount of excess return generated per unit of risk.
0.26
Volatility
?Volatility (or standard deviation), when applied to an investment fund, expresses its risk. It shows how widely a range of returns varied from the fund's average return over a particular period. For example, if a fund had an average return of 5%, and its volatility was 15, this would mean that the range of its returns over the period had swung between +20% and -10%.
18.13
Tracking error
?This measures the standard deviation of a fund's excess returns over the returns of an index or benchmark portfolio. As such, it can be an indication of 'riskiness' in the manager's investment style. A Tracking Error below 2 suggests a passive approach. At 3 and above the the manager will be deploying a more active investment style.
5.45
Information ratio
?This is a useful risk-adjusted measure of actively managed fund performance. It is calculated by deducting the returns of the fund's benchmark from the fund's overall returns, then dividing the result by its tracking error. The higher the Information Ratio the better. It is generally considered that a figure of 0.5 reflects a good performance, 0.75 very good, and 1.00 outstanding.
-0.02
R-Squared
?An indication of how closely correlated a fund is to an index or a benchmark. Values for R-Squared range between 0 and 1, with 0 indicating no correlation at all and 1 showing a perfect match. Values upwards of 0.7 suggest that the fund's behaviour is increasingly linked to its benchmark.
