Objective

The Fund aims to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in equity securities and depository receipts of small-cap companies registered or performing a substantial part of their business in emerging markets. Emerging markets small cap companies are those having a market capitalisation at the time of initial purchase within the range of the market capitalisations of companies included in the MSCI Emerging Markets Small Cap Index. If the market capitalisation of companies allowed by the Index falls below USD 2 billion, a security held by the Fund will only qualify for additional purchases if its market capitalisation does not exceed USD 2 billion.
