The Fund aims to achieve long-term capital growth on your investment. The Fund invests primarily in the shares of companies incorporated or listed on a stock exchange in emerging market countries, which are those countries listed in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. The Fund may indirectly invest in emerging markets by investing in American Depository Receipts (ADRs) and Global Depositary Receipts (GDRs), which are listed or traded on stock exchanges and regulated markets outside emerging markets. This can increase the overall risk profile of the Fund.
