Important Information

  • The Funds invest in various investments, such as but not limited to equities, bonds, money market instruments, collective investment schemes and alternative investments, each fund with a different investment objective and risk profile.
  • The Funds with exposure to emerging markets, non-investment grade bonds, smaller companies, equity linked instruments or alternative investments are subject to higher risks and volatility.
  • The Funds which invest primarily in a single sector or market are subject to higher concentration risk.
  • Certain Funds may invest more extensively in futures, options, swaps, forward currency contracts and other financial derivative instruments which may involve embedded leverage.
  • The Funds' investments may involve substantial market, currency, volatility, liquidity, credit/counterparty, downgrading, regulatory and political risks. If the issuers default, or the relevant securities or their underlying assets cannot be realised, or perform badly, investors may suffer substantial, or in certain cases, total loss of their investments.
  • Certain Funds may gain exposure to hedge fund and absolute return strategies (which may be extremely volatile) and the private equity and the real estate sectors (which may be less liquid). Because of their special and higher risks, substantial or, in certain cases, total loss may result with respect to investments in those asset classes.
  • The investment decision is yours but you should not invest unless the intermediary which sells you the Funds has advised you that the Funds are suitable for you and has explained why, including how investing in the Funds would be consistent with your investment objectives.

Dividend is not guaranteed and may be paid out of capital, which will result in capital erosion and reduction in net asset value. A positive dividend yield does not imply a positive return. The historical dividend yield may be higher or lower than the actual annual dividend yield.

Asian central banks have more room to implement rate cuts to counter the COVID-19-induced downturn.

This points to a potential of continuing injection of liquidity into the Asian equity markets.
