Fund Objective

The fund aims to provide capital growth. At least 80% of the fund will be invested in shares of companies in emerging markets. The fund has no bias to any particular size of company or industry. The 'on the ground' research we carry out in emerging market countries enables us to take advantage of the investment potential available in this asset class. We believe that emerging market economies have excellent long-term growth prospects and are generally growing at a faster rate than the developed world. The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives may be used to reduce risk or manage the fund more effectively.
