Equity

BGF Global Dynamic Equity Fund

Overview

Important Information: Capital at Risk. All financial investments involve an element of risk. Therefore, the value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed.

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.

All currency hedged share classes of this fund use derivatives to hedge currency risk. The use of derivatives for a share class could pose a potential risk of contagion (also known as spill-over) to other share classes in the fund. The fund’s management company will ensure appropriate procedures are in place to minimise contagion risk to other share class. 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. In addition, a full list of all currency hedged share classes is available on request from the fund’s management company

Negative weightings may result from specific circumstances (including timing differences between trade and settle dates of securities purchased by the funds) and/or the use of certain financial instruments, including derivatives, which may be used to gain or reduce market exposure and/or risk management. Allocations are subject to change.

% of Net Assets represents the Fund’s exposure based on the economic value of securities and is adjusted for futures, options, and swaps (except with respect to fixed income securities), and convertible bonds. On a market value basis the Fund is comprised of 89% equities, 2% fixed income, 9% cash equivalents. The Funds will not use borrowing to purchase additional investments but may be expected, via derivative positions, to obtain market exposure in excess of net asset value.
