Fund Objective: The Fund seeks to provide capital growth by outperforming each of (i) TOPIX Total Return Index (GBP) (“TOPIX”) and (ii) Russell/Nomura Large Cap Value Total Return Index (“RNLCV”), both converted to sterling, in a market cycle of five years. The Fund will invest at least 80% of its assets in (i) equities of Japanese companies; or (ii) companies which derive a substantial part of their revenues from activities in Japan. The Investment Manager’s investment process focuses on selecting stocks which it considers to be undervalued based on their Price to Book ratio (which compares a company’s share price with the accounting value of its assets (“PBR”)) relative to TOPIX). The Fund has a “Value” bias, as opposed to funds which have a “Growth” bias (i.e. invest in companies with high PBRs).
