The Fund's investement objective is to provide income with potential for capital growth primarily through investment in equity and equity related securities of Asian (ex Japan) companies. In order to generate additional income, the Manager may selectively sell short dated call options over securities or portfolios of securities held by the fund, or indices, by setting individual target 'strike' prices at which those securities may be sold in the future. The Manager is also permitted to sell put options on securities or portfolios of securities which are not held by the fund, or indices, at target prices that are pre-set below the current market level.
