The Fund invests up to 90% minimum of its net assets in the master fund Emergence M whose investment objective is to outperform the composite benchmark (50% MSCI EMF and 50% JPM EMBI Global Diversified Composite Index) over the recommended investment period by choosing asset classes, markets and securities from the emerging markets. The performance of this feeder Fund may be lower than the master due to its own management fees.
