Fund Provider Veritas Asset Management LLP
Fund Summary The Fund is designed for long-term investors who wish to build capital over a number of years through investment related securities in companies located in Asia (excluding Japan). Investments in the Fund may include financial derivative instruments. Such instruments may be used to obtain, increase or reduce exposure to underlying assets and may create gearing; therefore their use may result in greater fluctuations of the Net Asset Value of the Fund. The Investment Manager will ensure the use of derivatives does not materially alter the risk profile of the Fund. You can buy, sell and switch shares of the Fund on demand on any Business Day as defined in the "Definitions" section of the Fund's Prospectus. Recommendation: this Fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within 5 years. The base currency of the Fund is USD. It is intended that dividend income will be distributed as set out in the "Dividend Policy" section of the Supplement of the Fund.
