What are the Key Risks?

The value of shares in the Fund and income received from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Performance may also be affected by currency fluctuations. Currency fluctuations may affect the value of overseas investments.

  • The Fund invests mainly in the equity securities of emerging markets around the world, which have historically been subject to significant price movements, frequently to a greater extent than equity markets globally. As a result, the performance of the Fund can fluctuate considerably over time.
  • Other significant risks include:
    Emerging markets risk: the risk related to investing in countries that have less developed political, economic, legal and regulatory systems, and that may be impacted by political/economic instability, lack of liquidity or transparency, or safekeeping issues.
    Foreign Currency risk: the risk of loss arising from exchange-rate fluctuations or due to exchange control regulations.
    Liquidity risk: the risk that arises when an asset cannot be sold on a timely basis due to security-specific factors or adverse market conditions, which may impact the Fund’s ability to meet redemption requests, particularly if they are increasing.
    Chinese Market risk: In addition to typical risks linked to Emerging Markets, investments in China are subject to economic, political, tax and operational risks specific to the Chinese Market. Please also refer to the prospectus for China QFII risk, Bond Connect risk and Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect risk.
