1. Objective

    The Emerging Markets Leading Companies Fund aims to outperform (after deduction of costs) the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, as stated in Sterling, by at least 2% per annum over rolling five-year periods. There is no guarantee that this objective will be achieved over any time period and actual investment returns may differ from this objective, particularly over shorter time periods. The manager believes this is an appropriate benchmark given the investment policy of the Fund and the approach taken by the manager when investing.

    The 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.
