Fund Description

OLD MUTUAL GLOBAL EMERGING MARKET FUND will be a general equity portfolio. The main objective of this portfolio will be to deliver long-term capital growth by investing in a diversified portfolio of equity securities and non-equity securities to give exposure to companies operating in emerging market countries. Any income earned will be of an incidental nature.

In order to achieve these objectives, this portfolio will invest primarily in equity securities of companies listed on emerging market exchanges. It may also invest in equity securities of companies listed in developed markets that derive more than half of their assets, revenue or profit from emerging market countries. The portfolio may invest in non-equity investments in any emerging market jurisdiction.

The portfolio may also invest in American Depository Receipts, Global Depository Receipts and other equity securities such as preference shares. The portfolio may invest in listed financial instruments and unlisted forward currency, as well as interest rate or exchange rate swap transactions. These transactions will be included for efficient portfolio management purposes only.

In addition, this portfolio may also hold participatory interests of Collective Investment Schemes in portfolios of Equity, Non-Equity and Money Market securities registered in the Republic of South Africa or of participatory interests or any other form of participation in portfolios of Collective Investment Schemes or other similar schemes operated in territories with a regulatory environment which is, to the satisfaction of the Manager and Trustee, of a sufficient standard to provide investor protection at least equivalent to that in South Africa and which is in line with this investment policy.
