At least two-thirds of the Fund's assets (excluding cash) will invest in equities or equity related securities worldwide, which are selected for their income and capital growth potential. To enhance the yield of the Fund the Investment Manager selectively sells short dated call options over individual securities held by the Fund, generating extra income by agreeing strike prices above which potential capital growth is sold. The Fund may invest directly in China B-Shares and China H-Shares and may invest up to 10% of its assets in China A-Shares through Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect.
