Fund objective
The Fund seeks to maximise total returns for investors. The Fund will seek to gain at least 80% of its investment exposure to the full spectrum of permitted investments issued by, or giving exposure to, governments and agencies of, and companies domiciled in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in, emerging markets. The Fund will seek to achieve this investment objective by investing directly or indirectly in equities and equity-related securities, fixed income transferable securities (including non-investment grade) and fixed income-related securities (including derivatives in each case), units in collective investment schemes, and, when determined appropriate, cash and near-cash instruments. The asset allocation of the Fund is intended to be flexible and the Fund will maintain the ability to switch exposure as market conditions and other factors dictate. The currency exposure of the Fund is flexibly managed. In order to achieve the investment objective and policy, the Fund will invest in a variety of investment strategies and instruments. In particular, the Fund will use investment strategies and instruments for the active management of interest rates and the flexible management of currency exposure which may be denominated in non-emerging market currencies. In order to assist in achieving the investment objective of maximising total returns, and in order to manage volatility, the Fund also expects to invest in derivatives providing synthetic long and/or synthetic short positions.
