Objective

To provide long-term capital growth by investing primarily in small capitalisation emerging markets companies. At least 67% of the Sub-Fund's assets (excluding cash and cash equivalents) will be invested in equity securities of small capitalisation companies that are domiciled in, or carrying out the main part of their economic activity in, an emerging market country. Market capitalisation is the total value of a company's shares and may fluctuate materially over time. The Sub-Fund's weighted average market capitalisation will, at all times, be less than the weighted average market capitalisation of the MSCI Emerging Markets IMI Index.
