The fund is passively managed. The fund aims to reflect the performance, before fees and expenses, of the MSCI World Momentum (USD) Index (index) which is designed to reflect the performance of certain shares in large and medium listed companies across developed countries which are included in the MSCI World Index (Parent Index). The index is designed to outperform the equity market (represented by the MSCI World Index), through a momentum-based investment strategy. In order to be eligible for inclusion in the index, shares must be included as constituents within the Parent Index and are then selected using a momentum based strategy. A momentum based strategy looks to include companies, the value of which has performed well over the previous 6 to 12 months and which is likely to continue to perform well in the near future. The momentum based strategy is used in conjunction with additional risk criteria applied, such as a weighting based on a company’s size. The index is calculated on a total return net basis, all dividends and distributions by the companies are reinvested in the shares after tax. The composition of the index is reviewed on a semi-annual basis. The index is rebalanced on a semi-annual basis and may also be rebalanced at other times to reflect corporate activity such as mergers and acquisitions. The index is calculated daily in US Dollars. To achieve the aim, the fund will attempt to replicate the index, before fees and expenses, by buying all or a substantial number of the securities in the index. The fund may employ techniques and instruments in order to manage risk, reduce costs and improve results. These techniques and instruments may include the use of financial contracts (derivatives). The fund may also engage in secured lending of its investments to certain eligible third parties to generate additional income to offset the costs of the fund. The currency of the fund is USD. Returns and gains are not distributed but are reinvested in the fund. You may request the redemption of shares generally on a daily basis.
