Fund objective
The Fund aims to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in small cap companies incorporated in the Asia region (except Japan) or whose principal business activity is in the Asia region. Asian small cap companies are those having a market capitalisation at the time of initial purchase within the range of the market capitalisations of companies included in the MSCI AC Asia ex-Japan Small Cap Index (Index).  If the market capitalisation of companies allowed by the Index falls below USD 2 billion, a security held by the Fund will only qualify for additional purchases if its market capitalisation does not exceed USD 2 billion.  The Fund has the flexibility to invest in transferable equity and fixed income securities of issuers worldwide.
