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 share issuer derives a material proportion of its revenue from emerging markets. The underlying fund also employs certain investment exclusions. The underlying fund also targets a reduction in Carbon Footprint compared to the Benchmark. The Fund is a feeder fund that gains exposure to these shares by investing substantially all of its assets in the Russell Investments Emerging Markets Equity Fund (the underlying fund), which is managed by a related party of RIM and domiciled in Ireland. For further information on how Russell Investments seeks to achieve a reduction in Carbon Footprint and the investment exclusions employed by the underlying fund, refer to ESG considerations in the ‘How we invest your money' section of the Additional Information Booklet.
