Performance for the fund is reported net of fees. Performance less than one year is not annualised. Average annual total returns include reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. The index is not available for direct investment, therefore its performance does not reflect the expenses associated with the management of an actual fund. The index is used for comparative purposes only.

Performance data shown represents past performance and is not a guarantee of future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown. Performance may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. The investment return and principal value of an investment may fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original value. There is no guarantee strategies will be successful. Diversification neither assures a profit not guarantees against loss in a declining market.
