The investment objective of the Fund is to achieve medium to long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in equities listed in Asia ex Japan that offer attractive, growing and sustainable dividend payments.
The Fund will seek to achieve this investment objective by constructing a portfolio of dividend producing equity securities listed and traded on the stock exchanges in the countries represented in the MSCI AC (All Countries) Asia ex Japan Index (the “Reference Index”).
With effect from 17 Dec 2012, Nikko AM Shenton Asia Knowledge Fund has been renamed Nikko AM Shenton Asia Dividend Equity Fund.
^ The benchmark of the Fund was changed from MSCI AC Far East Free ex Japan Index to MSCI AC Asia ex Japan Index (Net Total Return) (the "Benchmark") with effect from 17 December 2012 in order to align the Fund's benchmark with that of its Underlying Fund. With effect from 1 June 2017, the Benchmark has been removed and there will no longer be any benchmark for the Fund. This is because pursuant to the investment objective of the Fund, the Fund is managed on a total return basis and as such, it does not seek to outperform any benchmark.
