Important Benchmark Information

The Sub-Fund is actively managed, seeking to deliver excess returns over the Sub-Fund’s benchmark. The holdings may or may not be components of the benchmark and the Investment Manager has broad discretion to deviate from the benchmark securities, weightings and risk characteristics. The degree to which the Sub-Fund resembles the composition and risk characteristics of the benchmark is not a specifically targeted outcome and could vary over time, and the Sub-Fund’s performance may be meaningfully different from the Sub-Fund’s benchmark.

Key Risks

Potential Investors should consider the following key risks before investing in the Sub-Fund:

Equity Risk: The value of shares and securities related to shares may fall due to issuer related issues, financial market dynamics and world events including economic and political changes.

Market Volatility Risk: All types of investments and all markets are subject to market volatility based on prevailing economic conditions. Price trends are determined mainly by financial market trends and by the economic development of the issuers, who are themselves affected by the overall situation of the global economy and by the economic and political conditions prevailing in each country. As securities may fluctuate in price, the value of your investment may go up and down.

Investment Loss Risk: Investments may decline in value and investors should be prepared to sustain a total loss of their investment.

FDI Risk: The prices of FDI can be highly volatile. In addition, the use of FDI also involves certain special risks depending on the type of FDI, including but not limited to correlation risk, counterparty credit risk, legal risk, settlement risk, margin risk, as well as other possible risks that may arise.

Emerging Market Risk: Emerging markets are typically smaller, less transparent and subject to evolving, less stable political and regulatory regimes.

The risk factors described above should not be considered an exhaustive list of risks, which potential investors should consider before investing in the Sub-Fund. For more details on the fund’s potential risks please read the Prospectus and Key Investor Information Document at
