                        Investment in units/shares of overseas mutual fund schemes other than HGIF Brazil Equity Fund, will be considered as a change in the
                        fundamental attribute of the Scheme and all applicable provisions under the SEBI (Mutual Funds) Regulations, 1996 read with any
                        amendments thereto, would be complied with, including giving an option to investors for a period of 30 days, to exit at the prevailing NAV
                        of the Scheme, without being charged any exit load.
                        The Scheme will not invest in the underlying scheme(s) which invest more than 10% of their net assets in unlisted equity shares or equity
                        related instruments.
Investment              The Scheme will invest predominantly in units / shares of HGIF Brazil Equity Fund. The Scheme may, at the discretion of the Investment
Strategy of the         Manager, also invest in the units of other similar overseas mutual fund schemes, which may constitute a significant part of its corpus. The
Scheme                  Scheme may also invest a certain proportion of its corpus in money market instruments and/or units of liquid mutual fund schemes, in
                        order to meet liquidity requirements from time to time.
Risk Profile of the Mutual Fund units involve investment risks including the possible loss of principal. Please read the SID carefully for details on risk factors
Scheme              before investment. 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.

    INSTRUCTIONS AND TERMS & CONDITIONS
    1.    This facility allows a unit holder to register multiple bank account details for all investments held in the specified folio (existing or new). Individuals/HuF
          can register upto 5 different bank accounts for a folio by using this form. Non individuals can register upto 10 different bank accounts for a folio. For registering
          more than 5 accounts, please use extra copies of this form.
    2.    Supporting Documents as mentioned in Part A will help in verification of the account details and register them accurately. The application will be processed
          only for such accounts for which valid documents are provided. Accounts not matching with such documents will not be registered.
    3.    If the bank account number on the cheque leaf is handwritten or investor name is not printed on the face of the cheque, bank account statement or pass book
          giving the name, address and the account number should be enclosed. If photocopies are submitted, investors must produce original for verification.
    4.    Bank account registration/deletion request will be accepted and processed only if all the details are correctly filled and the necessary documents are submitted.
          The request is liable to be rejected if any information is missing or incorrectly filled or if there is deficiency in the documents submitted.
    5.    The first/sole unit holder in the folio should be one of the holders of the bank account being registered. Unitholder(s) cannot provide the bank account(s) of
          any other person or where the First/Sole Unitholder is not an account holder in the bank account provided.
    6.    The investors can change the default bank account only by submitting this form. In case multiple bank accounts are opted for registration as default Bank Account,
          the mutual fund retains the right to register any one of them as the default bank account.
    7.    A written confirmation of registration of the additional bank account details will be dispatched to you within 10 calendar days of receipt of such request.
          Unitholder(s) must preserve this written confirmation as the account statement will only reflect the default bank mandate.
    8.    If any of the registered bank accounts are closed/altered, please intimate the AMC in writing of such change with an instruction to delete/alter it from our records.
    9.    The Bank Account chosen as the primary/default bank account will be used for all Redemption payouts/Dividend payouts. At anytime, investor can instruct
          the AMC to change the default bank account by choosing one of the additional accounts already registered with the AMC.
    10. If request for redemption is received prior to/together with a change of bank account or before verification and validation of the new bank account, the redemption
        request would be processed to the currently registered default (old) bank account.
    11.   If in a folio, purchase investments are vide SB or NRO bank account, the bank account types for redemption can be SB or NRO only. If the purchase investments
          are made vide NRE account(s), the bank account types for redemption can be SB/NRO/NRE.
    12. The registered bank accounts will also be used to identify the pay-in proceeds. Hence, unit holder(s) are advised to register their bank accounts in advance
        using this facility and ensure that payments for ongoing purchase transactions are from any of the registered bank accounts only, to avoid fraudulent transactions
        and potential rejections due to mismatch of pay-in bank details with the accounts registered in the folio.
    13. HSBC Mutual Fund, the AMC and its registrar shall not be held liable for any loss arising to the Unitholder(s) on account of inadequate or incomplete
        documentation resulting in delay or rejection of the request.
