Fund Aims

The investment strategy of the fund is to purchase units in the Fidelity Asia Fund. That fund aims to achieve long term capital growth from a portfolio made up of the shares of companies throughout the Pacific Basin, but excluding Japan. The portfolio is likely to have a bias towards larger companies. However, the fund operator is not restricted in the choice of company either by size or industry, or in terms of the geographical split of the portfolio, which is largely determined by the availability of attractive investment opportunities, rather than the outlook for each market.
