Summary fund objective
The investment objective of the Trust is to achieve long-term capital growth by investing in Korea.
The Trust will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 70% of its total assets directly and indirectly in equities and equity-related securities of companies incorporated in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in Korea, or quoted or traded on the stock exchanges in Korea.
For the remainder of its total assets, the Trust may invest outside of Korea, as well as in fixed income and cash.
While the Trust will aim to diversify its investments, allocation to certain industries or sectors may be more than 30% of its total assets depending on the Investment Manager’s assessment at different times.
In order to implement the investment policy the Trust may gain exposure through American depositary receipts, global depositary receipts and other equity related securities including participation notes, structured notes, equity-linked notes and debt securities convertible into equities. The Trust may also invest in collective investment schemes and other transferable securities. It may also use derivatives including futures, options, swaps, warrants and forward contracts for efficient portfolio management (including hedging).
