Important information

  • The Fund invests mainly in shares of companies organised under the laws of Japan, although it may include shares of companies organised elsewhere which derive revenues from or have substantial interests in Japan as the Manager considers appropriate.
  • Investors should note the risk of investing in Japan, currency exchange risk, equities risk, volatility risk, single country and concentrated funds risk, general investment risk, and risk relating to those share classes denominated/dealt in a different currency than the base currency of the Fund.
  • Financial derivative instruments (FDI) may be used for efficient portfolio management purposes or to hedge or reduce the overall risk of investments.  Risks associated with FDI include counterparty/credit risk, liquidity risk, valuation risk, volatility risk and over-the-counter transaction risk. The leverage element/component of a FDI can result in a loss significantly greater than the amount invested in the FDI by the Fund. Exposure to FDI may lead to a high risk of significant loss by the Fund.
  • The value of the Fund can be volatile and could go down substantially.
  • Investors should not base their investment decision on this material alone.
