Fund Summary & Key Points

The Global Hard Assets UCITS (“Sub-Fund”) seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing in shares of companies active in the exploration, development, production or distribution of "hard assets". Hard assets companies, directly or indirectly, derive at least 50% of revenues from exploration, development, production, distribution relating to energy, precious metals, non-precious metals and forestry products. The Sub-Fund’s benchmark is the S&P North American Natural Resource Index.

The Global Hard Assets UCITS is expertly managed by an extensive investment team that is among the industry’s largest, and includes trained geologist and engineers as well as senior analysts with deep sector experience. In selecting the individual stocks, the investment team is guided by its own fundamental assessment of companies, which often includes on-site visits.

You can lose money by investing in the Sub-Funds. The value of the investments may go up or down and the investor may not get back the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance and should not be the sole factor of consideration when selecting a product. Any investment in a fund should be part of an overall investment program, not a complete program. An investor should consider investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the investment carefully before investing.

Investment fund investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Investors should consult the prospectus and key investor information document (“KIID”) before subscribing to any fund.

Performance quoted represents past performance. Current performance may be lower or higher than average annual returns shown. Discrete performance shows 12 month performance to the most recent Quarter end for each of the last 5yrs where available. E.g. '1st year' shows the most recent of these 12-month periods and '2nd year' shows the previous 12 month period and so on. Performance data is displayed on a Net Asset Value basis, in Base Currency terms, with net income reinvested, net of fees. Brokerage or transaction fees will apply. Investment return and the principal value of an investment will fluctuate. Shares may be worth more or less than their original cost when redeemed.
