Fund Profile

Category: Open Ended Investment Company

The Fund 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 on the MSCI Japan 100% Hedged to EUR Index Net, the Fund’s benchmark index (Index). The Index provides a return on the MSCI Japan Total Return Index which measures the performance of large and mid capitalisation equity securities (e.g. shares) listed in Japan. Market capitalisation is the share price of the company multiplied by the number of shares issued. The Index also uses one month foreign exchange (FX) forward contracts to hedge each non-Euro currency in the Index back to Euro in accordance with the MSCI Hedged Indices methodology. Hedging reduces the effect of fluctuations in the exchange rates between the currencies of the equity securities that make up the Index and Euro, the base currency of the Fund. The Fund aims to invest in equity securities that, so far as possible and practicable, make up the MSCI Japan Total Return Index, as well as FX forward contracts that, so far as possible and practicable, track the hedging methodology of the Index. The Fund uses optimising techniques to achieve a similar return to its Index. These techniques may include the strategic selection of certain securities that make up the Index or other securities which provide similar performance to certain constituent securities. These may also include the use of financial derivative instruments (FDIs) (i.e. investments the prices of which are based on one or more underlying assets). FDIs may be used for direct investment purposes. 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. 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 accumulating shares (i.e. income will be included in their value). The Fund’s base currency is Euro. 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.
