What are the Key Risks?

The value of shares in the Fund and income received from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Performance may also be affected by currency fluctuations. Currency fluctuations may affect the value of overseas investments. There is no guarantee that the Fund will meet its objective.

  • The Fund invests mainly in the equity and equity-related securities of emerging markets around the world that have historically been subject to significant price movements, frequently to a greater extent than equity markets globally. As a result, the performance of the Fund can fluctuate significantly over relatively short time periods.
  • Other significant risks include: emerging markets risk, liquidity risk, operational risk.
