Investment Objective

To achieve long-term total return by investing at least two-thirds of the Fund’s assets in equities and equity-related securities of:
1) Smaller Companies with their registered office in an Asia Pacific country (excluding Japan); and/or
2) Smaller Companies which have the preponderance of their business activities in an Asia Pacific country (excluding Japan); and/or
3) holding companies that have the preponderance of their assets in Smaller Companies with their registered office in an Asia Pacific country (excluding Japan).
For the purpose of this Fund, Smaller Companies are defined as companies with a market capitalisation in the base currency of the Fund, as at the date of investment, of under US$5 billion.

Nature and Extent of Risks

Investment involves risks. Please refer to the offering document of Aberdeen Global for details including the risk factors.
1. Equity risk
The value of the Fund that invests in equity and equity-related securities will be affected by economic, political, market, and issuer specific changes. Such changes may adversely affect securities, regardless of company specific performance.
2. Risk of investing in Smaller Companies
Smaller Companies are subject to the risk of greater vulnerability to the release of unfavourable market news and information and the risk of being adversely affected by poor economic or market conditions. The stock of Smaller Companies may have lower liquidity and their prices are more volatile to adverse economic developments than those of larger companies in general.
3. Risk of investing in specific regional market
The Fund invests in a specific regional market sector (i.e. Asia Pacific country (excluding Japan)) and is likely to be more volatile than a more widely invested fund.
4. Risk of using financial derivative instruments
Risks associated with financial derivative instruments include counterparty/credit risk, liquidity risk, valuation risk, volatility risk and over-the-counter transaction risk. The leverage element/component of a financial derivative instrument can result in a loss significantly greater than the amount invested in the financial derivative instrument by the Fund. Exposure to financial derivative instrument may lead to a high risk of significant loss by the Fund.
5. Emerging markets risk
The Fund invests in stocks of Smaller Companies in Asia (excluding Japan) thereby providing exposure to emerging markets which tend to be more volatile than mature markets and its value could move sharply up or down. In some circumstances, the underlying investments may become less liquid which may constrain the Investment Adviser’s ability to realise some or all of the portfolio. The registration and settlement arrangements in emerging markets may be less developed than in more mature markets so the operational risks of investing are higher. Political risks and adverse economic circumstances are more likely to arise, putting the value of your investment at risk.
6. Exchange rates risk
The Fund may invest in securities denominated in a number of different currencies other than the base currency in which the Fund is denominated. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates may adversely affect the value of the Fund’s investments and the income thereon.
7. Risk of Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”)
The Fund will attempt to satisfy any obligations imposed on it to avoid the imposition of FATCA withholding tax. However, no assurance can be given that the Fund will be able to satisfy these obligations. If the Fund becomes subject to a withholding tax as a result of the FATCA regime, the value of the shares held by the shareholders may suffer material losses.
8. General risk
The value of shares and the income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount invested.
