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 Dow Jones Asia/Pacific Select Dividend 30 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 top 30 highest dividend paying companies in the Asia/Pacific region. Companies included in the benchmark index are those that have paid dividends in each of the past three years, have a dividend per share ratio greater than or equal to its three-year average annual dividend per share ratio, have a five year average payout ratio of greater than or equal to two-thirds of the five-year payout ratio of the corresponding Dow Jones country index, or greater than 118%, whichever is greater, a non-negative previous 12 month earnings per share and meet criteria for trading volume. The benchmark index is weighted according to dividend yield with individual companies capped at 10%. The Fund intends to replicate the benchmark index by holding the equity securities, which make up the benchmark index, in similar proportions to it. 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 quarterly). 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.
