The Emerging Leaders Equity Fund’s investment objective is to seek long term capital appreciation, measured in US Dollars, through investment primarily in a concentrated portfolio of equity securities in emerging and frontier countries. As markets in other countries develop, the Fund expects to expand and further diversify the emerging and frontier markets in which it invests. The Fund may invest in the equity securities of companies organised and located in countries other than an emerging or frontier market where the value of the company's securities will reflect principally conditions in an emerging or frontier country.
