The aim of the Sub-fund is to provide long term capital growth by taking exposure of at least two thirds of its total assets to equities of companies which have their registered office in Asia or exercise a preponderant part of their economic activities in that region. The Investor must be able to accept significant volatility, thus this Sub-fund is suitable for Investors who can afford to set aside the capital for at least 7 years.
