The Fund aims to provide a return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund"s assets. The Fund invests at least 70% of its total assets, directly and indirectly through permitted investments, in the equity securities (i.e. shares) and fixed income securities e.g. bonds) of issuers and companies domiciled in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in, Asia, excluding Japan. The Fund may invest in the full range of assets in which a UCITS may invest with a bias towards income-generating assets, including equity securities, fixed income securities, funds, financial derivative instruments (FDI), cash, deposits and money market instruments (i.e. debt securities with short term maturities) of issuers and companies domiciled in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in, Asia, excluding Japan.

The Fund is actively managed and the asset classes and the extent to which the Fund is invested in these may vary without limit depending on market conditions and other factors at the investment adviser"s (IA) discretion. In selecting these, the IA may take into consideration a composite benchmark comprising the MSCI Asia ex Japan Index (50%), the JP Morgan Asia Credit Index (25%) and the Markit iBoxx ALBI Index (25%) (the "Index") for risk management purposes to ensure that the active risk (i.e. degree of deviation from the Index) taken by the Fund remains appropriate given the Fund"s investment objective and policy. Whilst the Index is used by the IA in constructing the portfolio of the Fund, the IA is not bound by it and the Fund"s portfolio holdings may therefore deviate significantly from the Index. The Index should be used by investors to compare the performance of the Fund.
