Investment objectives

To achieve long-term capital growth through diversified exposure to emerging markets of the world. The fund will primarily invest directly or indirectly in companies that are incorporated in emerging markets or companies which have a significant part of their activities in or derive the majority of their revenue from emerging markets. The fund will invest primarily in equity securities either directly or indirectly through collective investment schemes. The fund may also invest in other transferable securities, money market instruments, collective investment schemes, deposits, cash and near cash. The fund invests in assets which are denominated in currencies other than sterling. The fund’s value can therefore go up and down due to changes in currency exchange rates.

The Ongoing Charges Figure (OCF) shows the drag on performance caused by operational expenses associated with a fund.

Expenses which are represented by this figure include payments to the manager, the trustee the custodian and their representatives. The figure also includes registration, regulatory, audit and legal fees, and the costs of distribution.

Performance fees, transaction costs, interest on borrowing, costs associated with derivatives, entry and exit fees and soft commissions are not included in the OCF calculation, and should be factored in separately by the investor.

The OCF is calculated by taking the sum of these expenses incurred in the last 12 months and dividing this by the average net assets of that class for the last 12 months.

Total Expense Ratio (TER) is a formula designed to show the ongoing costs to the investor associated with a fund, including some charges which are not factored into the annual management fee. In addition the fund’s annual fee, charges such as trading fees, audit and legal fees, and operational expenses are included in the TER, which is worked out by dividing the total cost of the fund by its total assets to arrive at a percentage.

Unlike the Ongoing Charges Figure, the TER takes into account performance fees. It does not include transaction costs paid to the custodian.
