This is an actively managed fund with a global investment mandate. The fund should invest at least 50% of the funds assets in emerging markets, i.e. countries or markets that are not included in the MSCI Developed Market Series. The funds objective is to find low-priced, high quality companies that are undervalued, under-researched and unpopular. To reduce risk, the fund seeks to maintain a reasonable geographic and sector balance.
