Fund objective
The Fund aims to maximise the return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund’s assets. The Fund seeks to gain at least 70% of its investment exposure to companies domiciled in, or exercising the main part of their business in, emerging markets. This is achieved by investing at least 70% of its total assets in equity securities and equity-related (E-R) securities and when determined appropriate, fixed income (FI) securities (such as bonds), money market instruments (MMIs) (i.e. debt securities with short -term maturities), deposits and cash. The E-R securities include financial derivative instruments (FDIs) (i.e. investments the prices of which are based on one or more underlying assets). The FI securities and MMIs may be issued by governments, government agencies, companies and supranationals (e.g. the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development) and will be investment grade (i.e. meet a specified level of credit worthiness) at the time of purchase.
