Certain of the SFC authorised funds within the GSF range are categorised as funds promoting environmental and/or social characteristics within the meaning of Article 8 of Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 on Sustainability-related Disclosures in the Financial Services Sector. For the avoidance of doubt, these SFC authorised funds are not environmental, social and governance funds in Hong Kong.

SFC authorization is not a recommendation or endorsement of a product nor does it guarantee the commercial merits of a product or its performance. It does not mean the product is suitable for all investors nor is it an endorsement of its suitability for any particular investor or class of investors.

The benchmark may vary. As such the performances of the “composite” benchmark may consist of a combination of the old benchmark prior to the change and the current benchmark post the change.

Investment involves risks. Past performance figures shown are not indicative of future performance.  Investors should read the offering documents of the fund for details, including the risk factors. This document and the company’s website have not been reviewed by the SFC. Issuer: Ninety One Hong Kong Limited.

Dividend is not guaranteed. The fund aims to make dividend payment to investors on a/an monthly/quarterly/semi-annually/annually basis. The Inc-2 and Inc-3 share classes may distribute dividends out of / effectively out of its capital. With regards to Inc-2 and Inc-3 share classes, the Board of Directors may at its discretion pay dividend out of gross income while charging all or part of the share class’s fees and expenses to the capital of the share class, resulting in an increase in distributable income for the payment of dividends by the share class and therefore, the share class may effectively pay dividend out of capital. Payment of dividends out of capital or effectively out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any distributions involving payment of dividends out of the Sub-Fund’s capital or effectively out of the Sub-Fund’s capital may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per Share

Performances based on NAV to NAV, with dividend reinvested in share class currency. The investment returns are denominated in share class currency, which may be a foreign currency. If investment returns are not denominated in HKD/USD, US/HK dollar-based investors are exposed to exchange rate fluctuations.

10 year calendar performance: The computation basis of the performance is based on the calendar year end, NAV-To-NAV, with dividend reinvested. These figures show by how much each share class increased or decreased in value during the calendar year being shown. Performance data has been calculated in share class currency, including ongoing charges and excluding subscription fee and redemption fee you might have to pay. Where no past performance is shown there was insufficient data available in that year to provide performance.

Other non-specified information referred to above, source: Ninety One.

The share class aims to make distribution as per the distribution frequency stated.
Annualised Yield = Distribution per share / Record date NAV x Distribution frequency x 100%.

Morningstar Ratings based on the above share class only.

The overall rating for a fund, often called the ‘star rating’, is a third party rating derived from a quantitative methodology that rates funds based on an enhanced Morningstar™ Risk-Adjusted Return measure. ‘Star ratings’ run from 1 star (lowest) to 5 stars (highest) and are reviewed at the end of every calendar month. The various funds are ranked by their Morningstar™ Risk-Adjusted Return scores and relevant stars are assigned. It is important to note that individual share classes of each fund are evaluated separately and their ratings may differ depending on the launch date, fees and expenses relevant to the shareclass. In order to achieve a rating the share class of a fund must have a minimum three-year performance track record.

For a full description of the Morningstar rating for funds, please see the attached guide. The guide is a third party-document and is for informational purpose only. We do not endorse or guarantee the accuracy of the information provided in this third-party document and we are not responsible for any consequences resulting from the use of the information contained in the guide. A rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold a fund.

The portfolio may change significantly over a short period of time. This is not a buy or sell recommendation for any particular security. Figures may not always sum to 100 due to rounding.
