The fund aims to achieve income with the potential for some capital growth, investing at least 70% of net assets directly in equity securities of companies globally. The Investment Manager will target investments which it believes offer attractive dividend yields in addition to price appreciation. As this fund may invest globally, it may be exposed to countries considered to be emerging markets. As well as investing directly in equity securities, the fund will also achieve exposure indirectly through the use of derivatives. To enhance the income of the fund, derivatives may be used to generate additional income, for example, by the writing of covered call options on securities held by the fund, generating extra income in return for agreeing a strike price above which potential capital growth in a specified period is sold. The generation of additional income may impact the fund's potential for capital growth, particularly in periods of rapidly rising markets where capital gains may be lower when compared with an equivalent uncovered portfolio. The fund is actively managed and aims to provide income and capital growth. Income will typically be in excess of MSCI ACWI Index (the ''Index''). The Index constituents are representative of the type of companies the fund invests in. The fund's 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 also is expected to invest in issuers, sectors, countries and security types that have different weightings from, and may not be included in, the Index in order to take advantage of investment opportunities. It is expected that over long time periods, the fund's performance will differ from the Index. However, over short time periods, the fund's performance may be close to the Index, depending on market conditions. The fund may invest its net assets directly in China A and B Shares. The Investment Manager is free to select equity securities of any company and is not restricted in its discretion to tactically allocate to any particular geographical region, industry sector or companies with a particular market capitalization if it believes that, relative to other equities, they may offer greater potential for income and capital growth.
