The objective of the fund is to generate a rising level of income with long-term capital growth. The fund invests primarily in shares of Asian and Australasian companies (excluding Japan). The fund may use derivatives (complex instruments) to manage the fund more efficiently, with the aim of reducing risk, minimizing costs and/or generating additional capital or income. The fund is actively managed within its objectives and is not constrained by a benchmark.
