• The Fund may use derivatives for hedging and for investment purposes. However, usage for investment purposes will not be extensive. The Fund may suffer losses from its derivatives usage.
• The value of the Fund can be volatile and can go down substantially within a short period of time. It is possible that a certain amount of your investment could be lost.
• Investors should not make investment decisions based on this document alone. Investors should refer to the Prospectus and Key Facts Statement for details including risk factors.

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.

Please refer to the Key Facts section for the inception date of the Fund and the Share Class.
