Important information

  • Eastspring Investments - Japan Dynamic Fund is referred to the ‘Fund’.
  • The Fund invests in equities and equity-related securities and is exposed to the risk of market price fluctuations.
  • The Fund invests in a single country, and may be subject to greater volatility compared to more diversified funds.
  • The Fund may invest in securities denominated in currencies other than the Fund’s base currency and may be exposed to currency and exchange rates risk.
  • The Fund may offer currency hedged share classes which involve currency hedging transactions that may, in extreme cases, adversely affect the Fund's net asset value.
  • The Fund may incur substantial losses if it is unable to sell those investments with liquidity risks at opportune times or prices.
  • The Fund may use financial derivatives instruments (FDIs) for hedging and efficient portfolio management purposes. Using FDIs may expose the Fund to market risk, management risk, credit risk, counterparty risk, liquidity risk, volatility risk, operational risk, leverage risk, valuation risk and over-the-counter transaction risk. The use of such instruments may be ineffective and the Fund may incur significant losses.
  • The Fund's Board of Directors may, at its discretion, pay dividends out of capital or gross income while charging all or part of the fees and expenses to the Fund’s capital, resulting in higher distributable income. Thus, the Fund may effectively pay dividends out of capital. Payment of dividends out of capital (effectively or not) amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment, which will result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per share.
  • Investment involves risk. Investors should not rely solely on this document in making investment decision. Past performance information presented is not indicative of future performance.

Japan has always been a corporate, not an economic, revival story. Investors willing to look beyond economic data will discover a market that remains attractively valued compared to global equities and one that offers opportunities from bottom-up basis.
