Fund SummaryThe objective of the Sub-Fund is to seek capital growth over at least 5 years. The Sub-Fund will invest at least 70% in the equity and equity-related securities of, or relating to, companies domiciled, incorporated, listed in, or which have a significant portion of their business in Emerging Market Countries (as defined below). Such securities may include exchange traded and over-the-counter common and preferred stocks, warrants, rights (which are issued by a company to allow holders to subscribe for additional securities issued by that company), depositary receipts and preference shares. The Sub-Fund is actively managed and may invest in any industry sector. “Emerging Market Countries” include all countries represented in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index and any countries (i) having an “emerging stock market” as defined by the International Finance Corporation; (ii) countries with low to middle income economies according to the World Bank; or (iii) countries identified in World Bank publications as developing. The Sub-Fund may also invest in units or shares of other collective investment schemes (which may also include exchange traded funds), investment grade government, corporate fixed income securities including convertible debt securities, cash and near cash. The Sub-Fund may invest in shares or units of collective investment schemes which are managed or operated by the ACD or an associate of the ACD. The Sub-Fund may use derivatives and forward transactions for the purposes of efficient portfolio management. The ACD considers that the use of derivatives for this purpose is not likely to affect the volatility or risk profile of the Sub-Fund. While the Sub-Fund investments will have no direct connection to any specific index or to any sector or industry weights, for performance reporting purposes, a comparison will be made against the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. However, the Sub-Fund is not constrained by this Index, and nor does the Sub-fund seek to target
