The Fund invests primarily in equities and equity-related securities of companies incorporated in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in the Asia Pacific region excluding Japan, or quoted or traded on the stock exchanges in those countries.

The Fund is subject to risks, such as investment, equities and equity-related securities, liquidity, counterparty, currency risks and the risks of investing in small and mid-capitalisation companies and convertible bonds.

The Fund’s investment may be concentrated in the markets in the Asia Pacific region excluding Japan and the value of the Fund may be more volatile. Investing in emerging markets may involve increased risks, including liquidity, currency/currency control, political and economic uncertainties, legal and taxation, settlement, custody and volatility risks.

The Manager integrates environmental, social and governance (ESG) information into the investment process, which may affect the Fund’s investment performance and, as such, may perform differently compared to similar collective investment schemes.

The Fund may have exposure to financial derivative investments for investment or efficient portfolio management purposes which may involve counterparty/credit, liquidity, valuation, volatility and over-the-counter transaction risks. Exposure to financial derivative investments may lead to a high risk of significant loss by the Fund.

Dividends may be paid out of unrealised capital gains at the discretion of the Manager which would effectively represent paying dividend out of capital. This amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Payment of dividends may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value of the Fund per unit.

Investors may suffer substantial loss of their investments in the Fund.
