Objective

This product will provide targeted exposure to smaller companies in the Emerging and Asia regions, which will be complementary to mainstream developed market small cap exposure. The fund will achieve its objective by investing in smaller Asian (ex Japan) companies and in smaller companies in the emerging markets of the world. It will also invest in smaller companies that may be listed and/or domiciled outside Asia/emerging markets, but which derive a significant portion of their business or growth from these regions. The Fund may also invest in collective investment schemes, derivatives, cash, deposits, warrants and money market instruments .
