The Fund aims to maximise long term total return (the combination of capital growth and income) by investing in emerging market countries.
The Fund will invest mainly in the securities of companies domiciled in or conducting the major part of their economic activity in emerging market countries*. Exposure to these securities may be gained through the use of derivatives. The Fund may invest across a wide range of geographies, sectors and market capitalisations. The Fund may also invest in other assets including collective investment schemes, other transferable securities, cash and near cash, deposits, warrants, money market instruments and derivatives.
* The current reference point for defining emerging market countries are those included within the MSCI Emerging Markets index and/or those included in the World Bank definition of developing economies as updated from time to time.
