The investment objective of the China Opportunities Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth.
The ACD’s investment policy is to invest the assets of the Fund primarily in equities and equity related securities of Chinese companies. These are defined as companies domiciled in and/or whose significant activities are in the People’s Republic of China. If the ACD considers it desirable, it may further invest up to one third of the total assets of the Fund in derivatives, forward transactions and other securities (including fixed interest securities, other equities, money market securities and cash). In exceptional circumstances and on a temporary basis, the ACD may hold a substantial proportion of the Fund in cash and/or money market instruments.
