The Sub-Fund aims to provide you with regular income and to grow the value of your investment over the long term by investing in shares or related instruments, such as: securities that are convertible into shares, warrants that give the holder the right to buy shares of Asian companies i.e. companies whose assets, products or operations are in Asia and in bonds issued by Asian governments, their sub-divisions or by Asian companies or banks. These bonds may pay fixed or variable rates of interest.
The Sub-Fund may invest more than 20% but does not intend to invest more than 45% of its net asset value in other investment funds including real estate investment trusts ('REITS'). These investment funds must have investment objectives and policies that are consistent with those of the Sub-Fund. Investment in other funds is made to expose the Sub-Fund to types of investments not covered already. The Sub-Fund may also use derivatives including swaps, futures and/or Contracts for Difference in order to indirectly obtain exposure to shares, bonds and the performance of financial indices.
