Fund Profile

Category: Open Ended Investment Company

Objective: The Fund aims to achieve capital growth over the long term (at least five years). Policy: The Fund invests in shares of large and mid-sized companies in emerging markets or where the majority of their activities take place in emerging markets. This includes companies that are listed on exchanges in developed markets. These companies generally have a total stock market value of at least US$1 billion. Emerging market countries are those which are not classified as developed markets by MSCI or FTSE, or which are categorised by the World Bank as middle or low-income, or which are not members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. The Fund may invest up to 10% in other funds. The Fund may use derivatives to reduce risk or to manage the Fund more efficiently. Strategy: The Manager’s investment strategy is founded on the principle of stewardship, allocating capital to good quality companies with sound growth prospects and strong management teams. The Manager’s investment style is inherently long-term and conservative, seeking to buy and hold high quality companies that can deliver acceptable returns over the long-term (at least five years). Benchmark: The Fund’s performance is compared against the value of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. The Fund's manager may use its discretion when deciding which investments should be held by the Fund. The Fund is actively managed; investment of the Fund’s assets is not constrained by the benchmark composition and the Fund’s manager has discretion within the Fund’s investment policy to invest in assets without regard to the benchmark. Recommendation: this Fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within five years. You will not receive any income from your investment. Any income will be rolled up into the value of shares in the Fund. You can buy and sell shares in the Fund on any business day. As long as we receive your instruction before 12 noon (UK time), shares will be bought at that day's price.

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.
