Fund objective
The Fund aims to achieve positive absolute returns through a combination of capital growth and income on your investment regardless of market conditions. The Fund seeks to gain at least 70% of any investment exposure to equity securities (e.g. shares) of companies domiciled in, or the main business of which is in, the Asia Pacific region, including Australia and Japan. This is achieved by investing at least 70% of its assets in equity securities and other equityrelated securities. The Fund may also, when determined appropriate, invest in fixed income (FI) securities, money market instruments (MMIs) (i.e. debt securities with shortterm maturities), deposits and cash. The equity-related securities include financial derivative instruments (FDIs) (i.e. investments the prices of which are based on one or more underlying assets).
