Please note the Fund-specific risks under the relevant section in Disclaimer.

All currency hedged share classes of this fund use derivatives to hedge currency risk.

Using the drop down box directly below the name of the fund, you can view a list of all share classes in the fund – currency hedged share classes are indicated by the word “Hedged” in the name of the share class.
