Fund objective
The Fund seeks to grow your capital primarily by investing in equities of companies from the Asia-Pacific region, excluding Japan. It is an actively-managed, relatively concentrated portfolio of stocks. A large part of investments are made in various currencies in the Asia-Pacific region. The Fund's performance can therefore be affected by fluctations in those currencies against the US Dollar. The Fund's value is calculated and expressed in US Dollars and does not use currency hedging for investment purposes. For share classes in other currencies, the currency risk in relation to the base currency (US Dollar) is not hedged. The Fund invests in stocks that we believe will rise in value over the long term. It invests in stocks with an attractive valuation and that should benefit from the region's strong economic growth. However, as an equity fund, its holdings can move in line with or return less than the broad stock market, so investors should be aware that the value of their holdings could fall and that they may not get back their initial investment. Investors in the Fund can redeem their units on any business day in Luxembourg, although we recommend a holding period of at least five years. Any income received by the Fund is reinvested (capitalisation share class).

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.
-3.2
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.
-0.01
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%.
15.67
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.
7.59
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.
-0.44
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.
