Equity

BGF ASEAN Leaders Fund

Overview

The fund invests a large portion of assets which are denominated in other currencies; hence changes in the relevant exchange rate will affect the value of the investment. Compared to more established economies, the value of investments in developing Emerging Markets may be subject to greater volatility due to differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability. The fund may invest in smaller company shares which can be more unpredictable and less liquid than those of larger company shares.
