The Fund aims to grow your investment.
The Fund will invest in shares of companies with a value of less than US$2.5 billion, at the time of investment, that are established or operating in emerging market countries. These are typically countries that are still developing their economies. The Fund will invest principally in Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America.
The Fund may also invest in other investment funds which, in turn, invest in specific markets or allow access to the expertise of specific fund managers.
