Who Should Invest

The Fund is designed for investors seeking a strategy that targets long-term capital growth by investing primarily in onshore Chinese equities.


The value of investments can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Investing in Chinese securities is subject to emerging market risks, and may also involve certain custodial risks. 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.
