Fund Objective

The investment objective of the Fund is to provide long-term capital appreciation. The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by primarily investing in equity and / or equity related securities of, or relating to, small market capitalisation companies domiciled in developed markets or which derive a large proportion of their income from developed markets. These equity and / or equity related securities may include small cap equities, common and / or preferred stock and / or Depository Receipts. The Fund may (but is under no obligation to) select its Investments from the MSCI World Small Cap Index which measures the performance of small capitalisation companies across the developed markets). As of [January] 2015, the MSCI World Small Cap Index consisted of the following 23 developed market country indices: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and the US. In pursuance of its investment objective, the Fund may also acquire units/shares of listed closed-ended REITs and / or collective investment schemes which can deliver exposure to small market capitalisation companies. The collective investment schemes in which the Fund invests will meet the requirements of the Central Bank and may include exchange-traded funds and other funds of the Company. The Fund may also gain exposure to the aforementioned equity and / or equity related securities and / or collective investment schemes through the use of FDIs and / or through investment in Convertible Debt Securities. The FDIs which may be used by the Fund for such purposes include Warrants, Futures, Options (including Options on Futures) and Swaps. A decision to use FDIs may be made for reasons such as efficiency (i.e. it may be cheaper to gain exposure to an underlying Investment than to purchase the Investment directly).
