Fund Profile

Category: Open Ended Investment Company

The Share Class is a share class of a Fund which aims to achieve a return on your investment, through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund’s assets, which reflects the return of the FTSE BRIC 50 Index, the Fund’s benchmark index. The Share Class, via the Fund, aims to invest so far as possible and practicable in the equity securities (e.g. shares) that make up the benchmark index. The benchmark index measures the performance of the 50 biggest companies in Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC) by full market capitalisation, that trade as either depository receipts for Brazilian, Indian or Russian companies, or shares listed outside of mainland China for Chinese companies. The benchmark index uses depository receipts (i.e. investments issued by financial institutions that give exposure to underlying equity securities) and shares listed outside of mainland China as more readily tradable substitutes for the underlying securities. The benchmark index is weighted by free float market capitalisation and the weighting of each component is capped at 15%. Free float-market capitalisation is the share price of the company multiplied by the number of shares available to international investors. The Fund intends to replicate the benchmark index by holding the equity securities which make up the benchmark index, in similar proportions to it (including American Depositary Receipts and Global Depositary Receipts which make up a large proportion of the benchmark index). The Fund may also engage in short-term secured lending of its investments to certain eligible third parties to generate additional income to off-set the costs of the Fund. The investment manager may use financial derivative instruments (FDIs) (i.e. investments the prices of which are based on one or more underlying assets) to help achieve the Fund’s investment objective. FDIs may be used for direct investment purposes. The use of FDIs is expected to be limited for this Share Class. Recommendation: This Fund is suitable for medium to long term investment, though the Fund may also be suitable for shorter term exposure to the Index. Your shares will be distributing shares (i.e. income will be paid on the shares semi-annually). Your shares will be denominated in US Dollar, the Fund's base currency. The shares are listed on one or more stock exchanges and may be traded in currencies other than their base currency. The performance of your shares may be affected by this currency difference. In normal circumstances, only authorised participants (e.g. select financial institutions) may deal in shares (or interests in shares) directly with the Fund. Other investors can deal in shares (or interests in shares) daily through an intermediary on stock exchange (s) on which the shares are traded.
