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 MSCI Emerging Markets Minimum Volatility Index, the Fund’s benchmark index. The Share Class, via the Fund, invests in equity securities (e.g. shares) that, so far as possible and practicable, make up the benchmark index. The benchmark index aims to reflect the performance characteristics of a subset of securities within the MSCI Emerging Markets Index (“Parent Index”) with the lowest absolute volatility of returns, subject to risk diversification. The constituents of the benchmark index are selected using a minimum volatility strategy which selects securities from the Parent Index based on estimates of the risk profile and expected volatility of each constituent and the correlation between all constituents in the Parent Index. Volatility of returns measures the movements in the daily price of the constituents over a period of time. The Parent Index measures the performance of large and mid-cap sectors (i.e. companies with large and mid-market capitalisation) within the equity markets in emerging markets. Market capitalisation is the share price of the Company multiplied by the number of shares issued. Companies are included in the Parent Index based on the proportion of their shares in issue that are available for purchase by international investors. The Fund uses optimising techniques to achieve a similar return to its benchmark index. These techniques may include the strategic selection of certain securities that make up the benchmark 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 use of FDIs is expected to be limited for this Share Class. 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). 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.

Performance

Historical returns are no guarantee for future performances. Investing in Financial markets and securities involves risk. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Investment losses may occur and investors could lose some or all of their investment in the Fund.
Entry fees, purchase charges, custody fees, exit fees, sale charges and taxes are not included in the calculation of past performance. Ongoing charges (including management fees, administrative fees and other costs) have been taken in to account, as they are already included in the price/NAV of the fund.
The performance in euro can be lower or higher than the performance in the currency of denomination of the fund due to fluctuations in exchange rates.
