  • The Fund invests primarily in Japanese securities and other securities whose performance is linked to that of the Japanese economy. The Fund will have limited RMB denominated underlying investments.
  • The Fund is therefore exposed to diversification, currency and equity risks, and, for currency hedged classes, risks associated with the hedging and class currency. For RMB hedged class, risks associated with the RMB currency and currency hedged classes risks. RMB is currently not freely convertible and RMB convertibility from offshore RMB (CNH) to onshore RMB (CNY) is a managed currency process subject to foreign exchange control policies of and restrictions imposed by the Chinese government. There can be no assurance that RMB will not be subject to devaluation at some point. The Manager may, under extreme market conditions when there is not sufficient RMB for currency conversion and with the approval of the Trustee, pay redemption monies and/or distributions in USD.
  • Investors may be subject to substantial losses.
  • Investors should not solely rely on this document to make any investment decision.
