The sub-fund seeks long term capital growth by investing primarily in a well diversified portfolio of investments in equity and equity equivalent securities issued by companies which have their registered office in, and with an official listing in, an Emerging Market, as well as companies which carry out a preponderant part of their economic activities in Emerging Markets. The sub-fund will seek to invest primarily in securities listed on a Regulated Market, but may also invest up to 10% of the subfund's net assets in securities listed on markets that are not Regulated Markets. Investment in interest bearing securities is also permitted either for short-term cash surpluses or in response to unfavourable equity market conditions and this is limited to one third of the total assets of the sub-fund. Whilst there are no capitalisation restrictions, it is anticipated that the sub-fund will invest primarily in larger, established companies. To the extent that the sub-fund may invest in India, the sub-fund intends to invest part of the net proceeds of the issue of Shares in HSBC GIF Mauritius No.2 Limited, HSBC Centre, 18 Cyber City, Ebene, Mauritius (the "Subsidiary") which is a Mauritian company wholly-owned by the Company. Under normal market conditions, that part of the net proceeds allocated to the Subsidiary will be invested substantially in Indian equities and equity equivalent securities of companies which have their registered office in, and with an official listing on a major stock exchange or other Regulated Market of India. The remainder of the net proceeds of the issue of Shares will be invested directly in equity and equity equivalent securities of companies which have their registered office in, and with an official listing on a major stock exchange or other Regulated Market of Emerging Markets. The investment objectives of the Subsidiary are in line with those of Global Emerging Markets Equity to the extent the sub-fund may invest in India and the Subsidiary will apply the Company's investment restrictions as outlined in this Prospectus. The Subsidiary was incorporated in Mauritius on 21 November 2007. It is wholly-owned by the Company. It will issue ordinary Shares and redeemable preference Shares only to the Company's Global Emerging Markets Equity sub-fund. The Subsidiary is registered with the Financial Services Commission and has obtained a certificate of tax residency from the Mauritius Revenue Authority in Mauritius (Please refer to Section 2.18. "Taxation"). The directors of the Subsidiary are responsible, inter alia, for establishing the investment objectives and policy of the Subsidiary, for monitoring the Subsidiary's investments and performance and for providing advisory services to the exclusive benefit of the Company, including in relation to massive redemptions in the sub-fund. The Subsidiary has appointed CIM Fund Services (previously known as Multiconsult Limited), Rogers House, 5 President John Kennedy Street, Port Louis, Mauritius, to provide administrative services to the Subsidiary in Mauritius, including maintenance of its accounts, books and records. The Subsidiary has appointed KPMG Mauritius of KPMG Centre, 30 St George Street, Port Louis, Mauritius, as auditors of the Subsidiary in Mauritius to perform the auditor's duties required by Mauritius law. The Subsidiary has appointed the Depositary Bank as custodian over its assets. The Company has appointed HSBC Bank (Mauritius), a bank incorporated under the laws of Mauritius and a wholly owned subsidiary of The Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited, and duly licensed to do business in Mauritius, and having an office at HSBC Centre, 18 Cybercity, Ebene, Mauritius, for the remittance of all cash and currency of the Subsidiary for the purpose of inward investment into India by the Subsidiary and in respect of remittances from such investments.The company and the Subsidiary shall issue consolidated accounts.
