A Accumulation Share Class
                                                  To provide capital growth primarily through investment in equity securities of Middle Eastern companies including
Investment Objective,                             companies in emerging Mediterranean markets. The portfolio may also, to a limited extent, seek exposure to the markets
                                                  of Northern Africa.
Policy and Risk
                                                  The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the
                                                  amounts originally invested. Investments in equities are subject to market risk and, potentially, to currency exchange rate
                                                  risk. This fund may use financial derivative instruments as a part of the investment process. This may increase the fund’s
                                                  price volatility by amplifying market events. Investments in emerging markets are subject to market risk and, potentially,
                                                  liquidity and currency exchange rate risk.

Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated.
All fund performance data are on a NAV to NAV basis, net income reinvested. Data is not available for the time periods with no % growth stated. In case a share class is
created after the fund's launch date, a simulated past performance is used, based upon the performance of an existing share class within the fund, taking into account the
difference in the Total Expense Ratio.
Some performance differences between the fund and the benchmark may arise because the fund performance is calculated at a different valuation point from the
benchmark.
