The fund's investment objective is to provide income with potential for capital growth primarily through investment in equity and equity related securities of Asian (ex Japan) companies. In order to generate additional income, the Manager may selectively sell short dated call options over securities or portfolios of securities held by the fund, or indices, by setting individual target 'strike' prices at which those securities may be sold in the future. The Manager is also permitted to sell put options on securities or portfolios of securities which are not held by the fund, or indices, at target prices that are pre-set below the current market level. The Manager may also, for the purpose of efficient management, use derivative instruments which replicate the performance of a basket of short dated call options or a combination of equity securities and short dated call options. Investment will primarily be in directly held transferable securities. The fund may also invest in collective investment schemes, cash, deposits, warrants, money market instruments and derivatives. In particular, the fund may buy or sell over the counter and exchange traded derivatives, and enter into total returns swaps. The fund will use derivative instruments for investment purposes as well as for efficient portfolio management.
