Scheme Specific Risk Factors are summarized below: The Scheme will be investing predominantly in units/shares of HGIF Brazil Equity Fund. The Scheme may, at the discretion of the Investment Manager, also invest in the units of other similar overseas mutual fund schemes, which may constitute a significant part of its corpus. Hence the Scheme’s performance may depend upon the performance of the underlying scheme. Any change in the investment policy or the fundamental attributes of the underlying scheme will affect the performance of the Scheme. Investments in the underlying scheme, which is an equity fund, will have all the risks associated with investments in equity and the offshore markets. If underlying scheme declares any day as a non-Business Day, AMC will also declare that day as a non-Business Day. However, if this information is received by the AMC from underlying scheme later in the day and the Scheme has already accepted transactions, such transactions will be processed on the next Business Day. The portfolio disclosure of the Scheme will be largely limited to the investments made by the Scheme. Risk Factors associated with Money Markets Investments in money market instruments would involve a moderate credit risk i.e. risk of an issuer’s liability to meet the principal payments. Money market instruments may also be subject to price volatility due to factors such as changes in interest rates, general level of market liquidity and market perception of credit worthiness of the issuer of such instruments. The NAV of the Scheme’s Units, to the extent that the corpus of the Scheme is invested in money market instruments, will be affected by the changes in the level of interest rates. Risk Factors for Underlying scheme (HGIF Brazil Equity Fund) Market Risk: The underlying scheme’s investments are subject to the risks inherent in all investments in securities i.e. the value of holdings may fall as well as rise. Currency Risk: As the underlying scheme will invest in securities which are denominated in foreign currencies (e.g. US Dollars), fluctuations in the exchange rates of these foreign currencies or any change in exchange control guidelines may have an impact on the income and value of the scheme. Hedging Risk: The investment manager to the underlying scheme is permitted, but not obliged, to use hedging techniques to attempt to offset market and currency risks. There is no guarantee that hedging techniques will achieve the desired result. Country Risk: The portfolio shall be exposed to the political, economic and social risks with respect to Brazil. Liquidity Risk: Investments can be negatively impacted by low liquidity, poor transparency and greater financial risks. Legal, Tax and Regulatory Risk: The underlying scheme could be exposed to changes (including retrospective) in legal, tax and regulatory regime which may adversely affect it and the investors. Settlement Risks: The scheme will be exposed to settlement risk, as Brazil may have different settlement periods and the procedures may be different. Emerging Market Risk: Economies in Emerging Markets like Brazil generally are heavily dependent upon international trade and, accordingly, have been and may continue to be affected adversely by trade barriers, exchange controls, managed adjustments in relative currency values and other protectionist measures imposed or negotiated by the countries with which they trade. Sector Concentration Risk: The portfolio may have a high concentration in natural resources sector. Because these investments are limited to narrow segment of the economy, the performance of the scheme could be sensitive to movements in these sectors. Risks associated with Investing in Foreign Securities Offshore investments will be made subject to any / all approvals, conditions thereof as may be stipulated by SEBI/RBI and provided such investments do not result in expenses to the Fund in excess of the ceiling on expenses prescribed by and consistent with costs and expenses attendant to international investing. Risk Mitigation Market Risk : Investment approach supported by comprehensive research. Factors Currency Risk : Investment Manager could use (there is no obligation) derivatives to hedge currency. · Country Risk : Investment universe is carefully selected to include high quality businesses. Liquidity Risk : Robust process for periodic monitoring of liquidity. Sector Concentration Risk : Investment across market capitalization spectrum and industries/sectors. Legal/Tax/Regulatory Risk : This risk is dependent upon a future event and will be clearly communicated to the investor. Emerging market Risks and Risks associated with foreign investments : The Fund will, where necessary, appoint intermediaries of repute as advisors, custodian/sub-custodians etc. for managing and administering foreign investments.
