Fund Provider Fidelity (FIL Inv Mgmt (Lux) S.A.)
Fund Summary The fund invests principally in equity securities quoted on stock exchanges in Asia excluding Japan. This region includes certain countries considered to be emerging markets. The fund may invest its net assets directly in China A and B Shares. The fund is actively managed. The Investment Manager will, when selecting investments for the fund and for the purposes of monitoring risk consider the MSCI All Country Asia ex-Japan (Net) Index (the 'Benchmark') as the Benchmark's constituents are representative of the type of companies the fund invests in. When monitoring risk, the Investment Manager references the Benchmark for the purpose of setting internal guidelines. These guidelines represent overall levels of exposure relative to the Benchmark and do not imply that the fund will invest in the Benchmark's constituents. Where the fund invests in securities that are included in the benchmark, its allocation to those securities is likely to differ from the benchmark allocation. The Investment Manager has a wide range of discretion with regards to the investment selection and may invest in companies, sectors, countries and security types not included in the Benchmark in order to take advantage of investment opportunities. It is expected that over long time periods, the fund's performance will differ from the Benchmark. However, over short time periods, the fund's performance may be close to the Benchmark, depending on market conditions. The fund's performance can be compared to the Benchmark.
