Fund specific risks

  • Investment risk – there is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. A capital loss of some or all of the amount invested may occur.
  • Geographic concentration risk – a fall in the Asia Pacific markets may have a significant impact on the value of the Fund because it primarily invests in these markets.
  • Company shares (i.e. equities) risk – the value of Company shares and similar investments may go down as well as up in response to the performance of individual companies and can be affected by daily stock market movements and general market conditions.
  • REITs risk – REITs are investment vehicles that invest in real estate, which are subject to risks associated with direct property ownership.
  • Stock Connect risk – Stock Connect is governed by regulations which are subject to change. Trading limitations and restrictions on foreign ownership may constrain the Fund’s ability to pursue its investment strategy.
  • Currency risk – the Fund is denominated in USD but holds assets denominated in other currencies. The value of your shares may rise and fall as a result of exchange rate movements.
  • Emerging markets risk – less developed countries may face more political, economic or structural challenges than developed countries.
  • Liquidity risk – some investments may become hard to value or sell at a desired time and price. In extreme circumstances this may affect the Fund’s ability to meet redemption requests upon demand.
  • Derivative risk – the Fund may use derivatives (i.e. financial contracts whose value is linked to the expected price movements of an underlying investment) with the aim of reducing the overall costs and/or risks of the Fund.
  • Capital erosion risk – all or part of the share class charges may be taken from capital. Should there not be sufficient capital growth in the Fund this may cause capital erosion.
