The objective of this fund is to provide growth by tracking the performance of the FTSE World Asia Pacific ex Japan Index.
The fund will invest almost entirely in company shares. The fund's investments will closely match those that make up the Index. The Index consists of a broad spread of Pacific region company shares (excluding Japanese companies). The fund may use derivatives (contracts which have a value linked to the price of another asset) for the following purposes: •To help with efficient day to day management. •To reduce some of the risks of the market. If you hold accumulation units, income from investments held by the fund (dividends) will be reinvested into the value of your units. If you hold distribution units, income from investments held by the fund will be paid out to you (as a dividend).
