Fund objective
The Fund aims to maximise the return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on your investment. The Fund invests primarily in the shares of companies which are domiciled in, or the main business of which is in, Asia excluding Japan. Many of these countries are developing countries. In particular, the Fund will invest in the shares of companies, which, in the Portfolio Manager's opinion, have good growth potential. For example the companies may demonstrate above-average growth rates in earnings or sales and high or improving returns on capital.
