The aim of the Sub-fund is to provide long term capital growth by taking exposure of at least two-thirds of the total assets of the Sub-fund to equities of companies having their registered office or exercising a preponderant part of their economic activities in emerging countries. The Sub-fund will focus on investing in equities that show lower volatility than average emerging equity. Conservative stands for the focus on equity with low volatility.
