Dual to Single Pricing Shareholder Notice
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.
Who Should Invest
The Fund is designed for investors seeking a strategy that targets long-term capital growth by investing in Korean equities.
The value of investments can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. One of the main risk factors associated with South Korean investments is the proximity to North Korea and the possibility of increased political tension. Changes in exchange rates between the currency of the Fund and the currencies in which the assets of the Fund are valued may also affect the value of the Fund. The Fund may also use derivatives for investment purposes. These are complex instruments that carry the risk of causing increased volatility in the value of the Fund.
