Collective investment schemes are generally medium to long-term investments.
The value of participatory interests or the investment may go down as well as up.
Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance.
Collective investment schemes are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending.
A schedule of fees and charges and maximum commissions is available on request from the manager
The manager does not provide any guarantee either with respect to the capital or the return of a portfolio
The performance is calculated for the portfolio. The individual investor performance may differ as a result of initial fees, the actual investment date, the date of reinvestment and dividend withholding tax. All fund performance data are on a NAV to NAV basis, net income reinvested and net of ongoing charges and transaction costs. Data is not available for the time periods with no % growth stated. In case a share class is created after the fund's launch date, a simulated past performance is used, based upon the performance of an existing share class within the fund, taking into account the difference in the ongoing charges and the portfolio transaction costs, and including the impact of any performance fees if applicable.
Annualised return is the weighted average compound growth rate over the period measured.
