Fund objective
The fund aims to provide capital growth. The fund will be invested in shares of smaller-sized Asian (ex Japan) and selected emerging market companies. The fund may also invest in companies from outside the Asian and emerging markets, if those companies derive a significant portion of their business or growth from these regions. Smaller-sized companies are considered companies which, at the time of purchase, form the bottom 30% by market capitalization of each individual market. The fund has no bias to any industry. We believe smaller companies can provide higher growth prospects than larger companies over the longer term, due to the fact they are typically in the early stages of their development. Smaller companies are less researched than larger ones. We believe that our focus on finding companies that offer sustainable growth patterns and are trading on compelling valuations should reward the fund's investors. The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives may be used to achieve the investment objective and to reduce risk or manage the fund more efficiently.
