Summary fund objective
The Barings German Growth Fund is an Irish-domiciled fund which mirrors the UK-domiciled Barings German Growth Trust. The Barings German Growth Fund maintains the same portfolio management team, has substantially the same objective, performance comparator, fee schedule and other key features as the existing UK-domiciled Barings German Growth Trust.
The investment objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth by investing in Germany.
The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 75% of its total assets directly and indirectly in equities and equity related securities (as described below) of companies incorporated in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in Germany, or quoted or traded on the stock exchanges in Germany.
For the remainder of its total assets, the Fund may invest outside of Germany (however, the Fund will not invest in emerging markets) as well as in fixed income and cash. The fixed income instruments (which will be used solely for cash management purposes) shall include investment grade fixed and floating rate corporate or government bonds, notes, debentures, convertible instruments (which for the purpose of this Supplement mean convertible bonds, mandatory convertible bonds, convertible preferred stock and equity linked notes), commercial paper, certificates of deposit, banker acceptances. The Fund will only invest in securities that are traded on markets and exchanges drawn from the list contained in Appendix II of the Prospectus.
In order to implement the investment policy the Fund may gain exposure through American depositary receipts, global depositary receipts and other equity related securities including participation notes, structured notes and equity-linked notes. The Fund may also invest up to 10% of its net assets in collective investment schemes.
With the intention that the Fund is eligible to the PEA regime (Plan d’Epargne en Actions equity savings plan) in France, the Fund will invest at least 75% of its assets in equities and warrants issued by companies where the head office is in the European Union (EU) or a European Economic Area (EEC) Country, except Liechtenstein.
Pursuant to the Investmentsteuergesetz (2018), the Fund intends to meet the requirements to be classified as being an “equity fund” and will invest at least 51% of its assets in direct equities.
