Total net returns represent past performance only. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Returns of the Fund can be volatile and in some periods may be negative. The return of capital is not guaranteed. *The returns shown have been calculated using the net asset value of the Fund from one period to the next. The returns include any re-invested distributions and are after fees and expenses. No allowance has been made for taxation or for any fees charged by operators of master trusts or wrap accounts through which the products are offered. For periods greater than one year returns have been annualised. Growth return is the unit price movement on exit to exit basis. Income is expressed as Total return less growth component. ** Benchmark is MSCI AC Asia ex-Japan Index, effective 1 January 2010. Benchmark data prior to 1 January 2010 is a blend of the MSCI Asia ex-Japan index and the MSCI Far East (ex-Japan) index. The major difference between the two indices is the inclusion of India in the MSCI Asia ex-Japan index. NR: NR at the end of the benchmark name indicates the return is calculated including reinvesting net dividends. The dividend is reinvested after deduction of withholding tax, applying the withholding tax rate to non-resident individuals who do not benefit from double taxation treaties.

This Fund is unhedged and is subject to the risk of fluctuations in international stock markets and currencies. Investors accessing the Fund through a master trust or wrap account will also bear any fees charged by the operator of such master trust or wrap account. Any apparent discrepancies in the numbers are due to rounding.
