Fund Objective

Investment Objective The Sub-fund aims to outperform (after deduction of costs) the MSCI Japan Small Cap Index, as stated in Sterling, by at least 1.5% per annum over rolling five-year periods. Investment Policy The Sub-fund will invest at least 90% in shares of smaller Japanese companies, being those which are listed, incorporated, domiciled or conduct a significant portion of their business in Japan. The Sub-fund will be actively managed and will generally invest in smaller companies in any sector, being a company that has either a market capitalisation or turnover of less than ¥150 billion at the time of initial purchase. To the extent that the Sub-fund is not fully invested in shares of smaller Japanese companies, the Sub-fund may also invest in other transferable securities of Japanese companies, money market instruments, deposits and cash. The Sub-fund may not invest in or otherwise use derivatives.
