The risk category is calculated using historical performance data and may not be a reliable indicator of the Sub-Fund's future risk profile. The risk category shown is not guaranteed and may shift over time. The lowest category does not mean risk free.

Why is this Fund in this category?

The capital of the Sub-Fund is not guaranteed. The Sub-Fund is invested in financial markets and uses techniques and instruments which may be subject to sudden and significant variation, which may result in substantial gains or losses.

Additional risks

Counterparty Risk: failure by any counterparty to a transaction (e.g. derivatives) with the Sub-Fund to meet its obligations may adversely affect the value of the fund. The Sub-Fund may receive assets from the counterparty to protect against any such adverse effect but there is a risk that the value of such assets at the time of the failure would be insufficient to cover the loss to the Sub-Fund. Stock Lending: the Sub-Fund may enter into securities lending agreements and as a result be subject to increased counterparty risk. Should the counterparty fail financially, the securities received will be called upon. However in the event of significant market volatility at the time of default the value of those securities received could fall below the value of the lent securities. In this instance the manager would not have sufficient cash to purchase the equivalent value of securities lent out which could result in a significant negative impact on the Sub-Fund's value. Operational Risk: the Sub-Fund is subject to the risk of loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people or systems or those of third parties such as those responsible for the custody of the Sub-Fund's assets. Risk linked to Method and Model: attention is drawn to the fact that the Sub-Fund's strategy is based on the utilisation of a proprietary share selection model. The effectiveness of the model is not guaranteed and the utilisation of the model may not result in the investment objective being met. Emerging market Risks: emerging markets or less developed countries may face more political, economic or structural challenges than developed countries. As a result, investments in such countries may cause greater fluctuations in the Sub-Fund's value than investments in more developed countries. In addition the reliability of trading, settlement and custody systems in some emerging market countries may not be equal to more developed countries and result in greater operational and liquidity risk. Further explanation of the risks associated with an investment in this Sub-Fund can be found in the prospectus.

Investment horizon

This Fund may not be suitable for investors who plan to withdraw their contribution within 5 years.

Fund manager comment : 29/02/20

Global equity markets sold off as the coronavirus outbreak worsened outside of China; emerging markets, however, performed better than their developed counterparts but still fell -5.3% in USD terms, as measured by the MSCI Emerging Markets index. The Fund outperformed its benchmark, net of fees and expenses applicable to the A USD share class. Style exposures went unrewarded over the month, with the portfolio’s emphasis on lowly-valued companies being particularly challenged as investors once again gravitated towards growth stocks. Industry-wise the underweight relative to benchmark in oil integrated stocks contributed positively to relative returns given the sector’s particularly weakness. Not owning, Petrol Braisileiros, Lukoil and Vale featured among the top stock contributors to relative returns. Stock selection in aggregate was positive, with top stock picks coming from the financials and industrials sector although offset to some extent by weaker stock picks coming from communication services and technology sectors.
