The Fund is actively managed without reference to a benchmark. Investments in the portfolio are not specifically selected from the constituents of a benchmark, hence the Fund's investment policy is in no way constrained.

The maximum and expected percentages of the Net Asset Value of the Fund that can be subject to repurchase transactions are 20% and 5% respectively. The expected percentage is not a limit and the actual percentage may differ from the expected percentage over time, depending on factors including, but not limited to, market conditions (such as a financial crisis).

The Fund does not engage in reverse repurchase transaction.

The Fund may invest up to 100% of its Net Asset Value in cash and other money market instruments including certificates of deposit, Treasury Bills and commercial paper issued by highly rated (Investment Grade or higher) corporate or sovereign issuers ("Liquid Instruments") which are traded in Regulated Markets (and up to 10% of its Net Asset Value in Liquid Instruments which are not listed, traded or dealt in on a Regulated Market) for cash flow purposes or where the Investment Manager believes that economic, financial and political conditions make it advisable to do so and it would not be in the best interests of the Shareholders to be fully invested or where the Fund needs to maintain liquidity to meet redemption requests.
