Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Investors may not get back the full amount invested.

Performance is calculated based on the period NAV-to-NAV with dividend reinvested. Performance figures are calculated net of fees.

These figures show by how much the Share Class of the Fund increased or decreased in value during the period being shown. Performance is calculated in the relevant share class currency, including ongoing charges and taxes and excluding subscription and redemption fees, if applicable.

Where no past performance is shown there was insufficient data available in that period to provide performance.
