Important information

  • Eastspring Investments - Global Low Volatility Equity Fund is referred to as the ‘Fund’.
  • The Fund invests in equities and equity-related securities and is exposed to the risk of market price fluctuations.
  • Given the investment strategy of the Fund, investors should note that lower volatility does not necessarily mean low risk. The Fund may not produce lower price variability as compared to the global market and the Fund may be precluded from fully capturing the upside in rising markets. The investments selected using the systematic models may perform differently than expected.
  • The Fund may invest primarily in specific geographical Region and may be more volatile than a diversified fund.
  • The Fund’s investments in emerging markets subject it to greater political, tax, economic, foreign exchange, liquidity and regulatory risks.
  • 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 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 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.

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 may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per share
