Skandia First State Greater China Growth

FE Crown Rating

Fund Objective

The Skandia First State Greater China Growth Fund invests solely in the First State Greater China Growth Fund, a sub fund of the First State Investments ICVC, a UK authorised Open Ended Investment Company managed by First State Investments (UK) Limited. The aim of the underlying fund is to achieve long-term capital growth. The underlying fund invests in equity and equity type securities issued by companies established or having a predominant part of their economic activities in the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Investments in emerging markets tend to be volatile and are usually considered to carry a greater degree of risk than investments in established markets. This relates to dealing, settlement and custody practices, the possibility of political or economic instability, and developing legal, fiscal and regulatory structures. The underlying fund invests into a relatively small number of assets, or into individual countries or a specific market sector. Such concentrated portfolios give rise to more risk than where investments are spread across a larger number of assets, countries or market sectors. The underlying fund may be denominated in or hold assets in a currency other than Sterling. The performance of the fund may therefore rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations. Some of the investments in the underlying fund can be difficult to sell at times, which could affect the price of units. It should be noted that the performance of the Skandia fund will not match that of the underlying investment due to Skandia fund charges, appropriate taxation adjustments and the Skandia investment process.
