Fund Objective

The fund aims to achieve long-term capital growth from a portfolio primarily made up of equity securities issued by companies that are listed in, incorporated or have their domicile in, or exercise a majority of their activity in Asia excluding Japan. The fund adopts a best-in-class strategy under which a minimum of 70% of the fund's net assets will be invested in securities which are deemed to maintain sustainable characteristics. Sustainable characteristics may include but are not limited to effective governance and superior management of environmental and social issues ('ESG'), and an issuer is deemed to maintain this, if it has an ESG rating which is above the minimum ESG rating threshold determined by the Investment Manager from time to time. The Investment Manager will determine the minimum ESG rating threshold and assess the ratings of securities and their issuers based on quantitative and qualitative assessments of their sustainability characteristics. "Quantitative assessments" will be by reference to ESG ratings from external providers including but not limited to MSCI, or an internal rating assigned by the Investment Manager using primarily Fidelity Sustainability Ratings, relevant data in third-party certificates or labels, assessment reports on carbon footprints, and percentage of revenue or profits of the issuers generated from ESG-relevant activities. Fidelity Sustainability Ratings is a proprietary rating system created by Fidelity's research analysts which scores issuers on an A-E scale and trajectory forecast based on fundamental bottom-up research and materiality assessment using criteria specific to the industry of each company. "Qualitative assessments" will be by reference to case studies, environmental, social and governance impacts associated with the issuers, product safety documents, customer reviews, company visits or data from proprietary models and local intelligence. ESG ratings and associated ESG data, including Fidelity Sustainability Ratings, are part of a centralised research platform operated by the Investment Manager. The provision and source of ESG data is reviewed on a regular basis to ensure its continuing suitability, adequacy and effectiveness for the assessment of sustainability characteristics. Assessment factors and minimum ratings thresholds may change over time or vary in importance depending on the sector or industry an issuer operates in. The fund adheres to a principles-based exclusion framework which sets out the basis upon which certain issuers are excluded from the permissible investment universe. The framework incorporates both norms-based screening and negative screening of certain sectors, companies or practices based on specific ESG criteria to be determined by the Investment Manager from time to time. The norms-based screening includes issuers which fail to behave in a way which meets their fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption as set out by the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact. The negative screening includes issuers within certain single product categories or industries which are fundamentally unsustainable or are associated with significant risks or liabilities from societal, environmental or health related harm. As an illustrative example, manufacturers of controversial weapons (e.g. land mines, nuclear weapons) are excluded from the investment universe of the fund under this framework. The current exclusion criteria may be updated from time to time. To apply this exclusion, the Investment Manager may use data provided by internal research teams as well as various external ESG data, tools and research providers. The largest ten securities held in the fund's portfolio may account for 50% or more of the fund's Net Asset Value, resulting in a reasonably concentrated portfolio. The fund may invest its net assets directly in China A and B Shares.
