Fund objective
The fund aims to provide long term growth and is designed for investors who are looking for exposure to the Japanese equity market. The fund invests predominantly in the shares of companies listed on the Japanese stock markets and it is actively managed. Please note that the Japanese equity exposure in this fund is currently managed by Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank, one of Japan's leading domestic equity managers. Past performance is not a guide to future returns and future returns are not guaranteed. The price of assets and the income from them may go down as well as up and cannot be guaranteed; an investor may receive back less than their original investment. The fund may use derivatives to reduce risk or cost, or to generate additional capital or income at low risk. Usage of derivatives is monitored to ensure that the fund is not exposed to excessive or unintended risks. The value of assets held within the fund may rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations.
