Assets under management $50,122,755(As at 24/05/2023)
Fund inception 30th April 2007
Minimum Investment timeframe 7 years
Investment return objective To significantly outperform the Fund’s benchmark, before costs and tax, over the long term by providing exposure to a diversified portfolio of predominantly emerging market shares.
Investment strategy The Fund is predominantly exposed to shares listed on stock exchanges in emerging markets. The Fund may also have exposure to shares listed on stock exchanges in countries which are considered ‘frontier’ or ‘pre-emerging’ and to shares listed on developed markets’ stock exchanges where the issuer of the security derives a material proportion of its revenue from the emerging markets. The underlying fund seeks to reduce its carbon footprint exposure compared to the Benchmark. The underlying fund will invest in corporations which follow good governance practices by international standards, including company responsibility, company management and the severity of impacts on stakeholders and/or the environment. The Fund is a feeder fund which gains exposure to these assets by investing substantially all of its assets in the Russell Investments Emerging Markets Equity Fund, which is managed by a related party of RIM and domiciled in Ireland.
