The fund aims to achieve long-term capital growth by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of smaller companies that have their head office or exercise a predominant part of their activities in Asia Pacific (excluding Japan). This region includes certain countries considered to be emerging markets.
The fund may invest its net assets directly in China A and B Shares.
The fund is actively managed. The Investment Manager will, when selecting investments for the fund and for the purposes of monitoring risk, reference MSCI AC Asia Pacific ex Japan Small Cap Australia Capped 10% Index (the Index) as the Index constituents are representative of the type of companies the fund invests in. The funds performance can be assessed against its Index.
The Investment Manager has a wide range of discretion relative to the Index. While the fund will hold assets that are components of the Index, it may also invest in companies, countries or sectors that are not included in, and that have different weightings from, the Index in order to take advantage of investment opportunities. It is expected that over long time periods, the funds performance will differ from the Index. However, over short time periods, the funds performance may be close to the Index, depending on market conditions.
Smaller companies are generally defined as having a market capitalisation range of less than USD 8,000million in terms of the companys full market capitalisation. The fund may have an exposure to companies with market capitalisations falling outside this range.
