Fund Summary The Sub-fund aims to achieve long term capital growth.The Sub-fund will invest at least 90% in the shares of, or depositary receipts representing the shares of, Chinese companies. Chinese companies are companies that have their headquarters or conduct a significant part of their operations in China and may be listed, quoted or traded on any market. Depositary receipts are transferable securities issued by a bank and which represent the shares of a company. Many Chinese companies are available for investment only through depositary receipts. The ACD will determine what constitutes conducting a significant part of a company?s operations in China and in doing so the ACD will consider various factors including whether the majority of the company?s revenues or profits are derived from or the majority of its assets are in China. The Sub-fund will be actively managed and may invest in companies of any size and in any sector.To the extent that the Sub-fund is not fully invested in shares or depositary receipts of Chinese companies, the Sub-fund may also invest in other transferable securities of Chinese companies, money market instruments, deposits, cash and near cash.
