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 invests at least 70% of its assets in shares and other equity-related securities of small and mid capitalisation companies domiciled in, or the main business of which is in, Latin America. Small and mid capitalisation companies are companies, which at the time of purchase, form the bottom 30% of Latin American exchanges by market capitalisation. Market capitalisation is the share price of the company multiplied by the number of shares issued. The equity-related securities include financial derivative instruments (FDIs). The Portfolio Manager may use FDIs to help achieve the Fund’s investment objective.
