ObjectiveThe value of investments and any income from them may go down as well as up and you or your client may not get back the amount originally invested.
The Worldwide Emerging Markets Leading Companies Fund aims to maximise total return principally through investment primarily in a portfolio of companies deriving a substantial part of their income from, or having a substantial proportion of their assets located in, one or more Emerging Market Countries. It is not proposed to concentrate investments in any one country, market or sector. The Fund’s share price can be volatile due to movements in the prices of the underlying holdings and the basis on which the Fund is priced.
