The objective of the Fund is to achieve capital growth. The Fund invests primarily in shares of Asian and Australasian companies (excluding Japan), or in shares of companies with significant interests in Asia and Australasia. The Fund may use derivatives (complex instruments) to manage the Fund more efficiently, with the aim of reducing risk, minimising costs and/or generating additional capital or income. The Fund is actively managed within its objectives and is not constrained by a benchmark.

Headline performance can mask the true characteristics of a fund. Without fully understanding how a fund is managed, you may inadvertanly become exposed to an undesirable level of risk to your capital. Some funds carry a dilution levy which reduces the number of units realised on any initial investment as an initial charge. If this fund carries such a levy it should be detailed in the Key Investor Information Document (KIID), which we must provide and you should read before investing.
The graphs shown are supplied by an external data provider and may contain data that appears to preced the introduction of the clean unit class for this fund. In such cases, historial data has been synthesised at the entire discretion of that external provider as realistically as possible using historical data recorded against the previously available commission-paying version of the fund, adjusting for fees in the process.
The documents listed below are the latest versions made available to our data provider by the fund management group, but may not necessarily reflect the applicable charges that would be levied should you purchase this fund via Charles Stanley Direct. You should treat the charges and other figures shown in the 'Overview' tab as accurate.
