Key Features

About the Fund

Emerging markets can present investors with an attractive opportunity for diversification across markets that are traditionally difficult to access, and have the potential for high returns over the long term. The Fund invests securities listed on emerging market stock exchanges, some of which are considered 'frontier' markets.

Fund strategy

The Fund is predominantly exposed to shares listed on stock exchanges in emerging markets. The Fund may also have exposure to shares listed on stock exchanges in countries which are considered frontier' or pre-emerging' and to shares listed on developed markets' stock exchanges where the issuer derives a material proportion of its revenue from the emerging markets.
