Fund Objective

The objective of the fund is to achieve capital growth. The fund invests primarily in shares of Japanese companies or shares of companies with significant interests in Japan. The fund may use derivatives (complex instruments) to manage the fund more efficiently, with the aim of reducing risk, minimising costs and/or generating additional capital or income. The fund is actively managed within its objectives and is not constrained by a benchmark.
