Summary of Fund Objective

The Fund seeks total return, consisting of capital appreciation, income, cash and currency gains, by investing across the entire range of available investment opportunities linked to Brazil.

What are the Key Risks?

The value of shares in the Fund and income received from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Performance may also be affected by currency fluctuations. Currency fluctuations may affect the value of overseas investments.

  • The Fund is an asset allocation fund that invests mainly in equity and equity-related securities issued by companies located in, doing significant business in, or otherwise linked to Brazil as well as Brazilian debt securities of any quality, including non-investment grade. Such securities have historically been subject to price movements, generally due to either company-specific or market-related factors and, for the debt securities, movements in interest rates and the local bond market generally. As a result, the performance of the Fund can fluctuate over time.
  • The Fund may distribute income gross of expenses. Whilst this might allow more income to be distributed, it may also have the effect of reducing capital.
  • Other significant risks include: credit risk, emerging markets risk, currency risk, derivatives risk, liquidity risk.
