Fund Profile

Category: SICAV

The Fund aims to maximise the return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund’s assets. The Fund invests at least 70% of its total assets in the equity securities (e.g. shares) of companies domiciled in, or the main business of which is in, Europe. Europe refers to all European countries including the United Kingdom, Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union countries. The investment adviser has discretion to select the Fund's investments and in doing so may take into consideration the MSCI Europe Index. Recommendation: This Fund may not be appropriate for shortterm investment. Your shares will be nondistributing (i.e. dividend income will be included in their value). The Fund’s base currency is Euro. Your shares will be denominated in Australian Dollar. Your shares will be “hedged” with the aim of protecting them from exchange rate fluctuations between their denominated currency and the base currency of the Fund. Currency hedging may not completely eliminate currency risk and, therefore, may affect the performance of your shares. You can buy and sell your shares daily. The minimum initial investment for this share class is US$5,000 or currency equivalent.

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.
