Performance & returns

10/26/2020
The value of investments, and any income generated from them, can fall as well as rise. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. If the currency shown differs from your home currency, returns may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. Investment objectives and performance targets may not necessarily be achieved, losses may be made. We recommend that you seek independent financial advice to ensure this Fund is suitable for your investment needs. Where a shareclass has been in existence for less than 12 months, performance is not disclosed. No representation is being made that any investment will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those achieved in the past, or that significant losses will be avoided. The Trailing Returns chart may use different Sector performance start dates compared to other performance charts or other marketing literature which may result in minor differences. Where a benchmark index is calculated on a monthly basis, the returns will be out of line with the fund and/or sector which are calculated daily.

Specific fund risks

Currency exchange

Changes in the relative values of different currencies may adversely affect the value of investments and any related income.

Derivatives

The use of derivatives is not intended to increase the overall level of risk. However, the use of derivatives may still lead to large changes in value and includes the potential for large financial loss. A counterparty to a derivative transaction may fail to meet its obligations which may also lead to a financial loss.

Equity investment

The value of equities (e.g. shares) and equity-related investments may vary according to company profits and future prospects as well as more general market factors. In the event of a company default (e.g. insolvency), the owners of their equity rank last in terms of any financial payment from that company.

Geographic / Sector

Investments may be primarily concentrated in specific countries, geographical regions and/or industry sectors. This may mean that the resulting value may decrease whilst portfolios more broadly invested might grow.

Portfolio Currency Hedging

Portfolio currency hedging aims to protect investors from a decline in the value of the primary currencies of the underlying investments, and investors may not benefit from an increase in the value of those currencies against the value of the share class currency. Where the underlying investments are denominated in currencies where the hedging costs are higher, for instance in emerging market currencies, the hedged returns can be significantly lower than the local currency returns. There can be no assurance that hedging strategies will be successful and such hedging can positively or negatively impact investors by inaccuracies in the operation of the hedge.

Performance data source: © Morningstar, NAV based, (net of fees, excluding initial charges), total return, in the share class dealing currency. Performance would be lower had initial charges been included as an initial charge of up to 5% (10% for S shares) may be applied to your investment. This means that for an investment of $1,000, where the initial charge equals 5%, $950 ($900 for S shares) would actually be invested in the Fund. Returns to individual investors will vary in accordance with their personal tax status and tax domicile.

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 shareclasses 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 ratings, please see our ratings 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.
