A more favorable growth outlook

Compared with the developed markets, the emerging world may have a brighter economic outlook in 2021. China is the first major economy to rebound from the pandemic, with growth rate projected to stay positive this year.


Access to “the new economy” with attractive valuations

Emerging market economies have moved away from “old economy” sectors, such as commodities and industrials. They have shifted toward the “new economy” sectors of technology, consumer products and services, and financials.


Exposure to different stages of the economic cycle

Emerging markets are diverse in nature. It can provide investors with exposure to different stages of the economic cycle. This also allows investment managers to create distinct and less correlated investment strategies.

Investment Objective:

The objective of the Fund is to seek to achieve capital growth through investment in global emerging markets equities.

Investment Policy:

The Fund will invest at least 80% of its net asset value (“NAV”) in transferable equity and equity-related securities of a diversified range of companies in what the Sub-Adviser considers to be emerging economies of the world, normally with a minimum market capitalisation on purchase of up to US$1 billion, which may at times be concentrated in any of the foregoing emerging economies as a result of the Sub-Adviser’s investment strategy having regard to the prevailing market factors / opportunities rather than as a result of a predetermined investment strategy. These securities will primarily be common stocks and other securities with equity characteristics, including but not limited to preferred stocks, warrants (only held where an existing holding is subject to an issuance of warrants and, in aggregate, normally not more than 5% of the Fund's NAV) and rights (which are issued by a company to allow holders to subscribe for additional securities issued by that company), as well as depository receipts (such as American Depository Receipts (ADRs) and Global Depository Receipts (GDRs)). The securities acquired by the Fund (other than permitted unlisted investments), will be listed/traded on securities exchanges or regulated markets listed in Appendix A to the Summary Prospectus.
