A Fact Sheet is for informational purposes only and does not constitute investment, legal, tax or other advice or any recommendation to buy or sell the securities herein mentioned.

Collective Investment Schemes (CISs) are generally medium to long term investments. The value of participatory interests or the investment may go down as well as up, and therefore the CIS Manager does not make guarantees with respect to the protection of capital or returns of the investment. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. CISs are traded at ruling process and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending. The portfolio may include underlying foreign investments, and may as a result be expose to macroeconomic, political, foreign exchange, tax, settlement, reporting or illiquidity risk factors that may be different or similar to investments in your domicile. The underlying foreign investments may also be adversely affected by foreign investment policies, restrictions on repatriation of investments and other restrictions and controls that may be imposed by the relevant authorities of the relevant countries. The CIS Manager reserves the right to close the fund to new investors if it is necessary to limit further inflows for it to be managed in accordance with its mandate.
Investors in the Fund are not protected by any statutory compensation arrangements in Mauritius in the event of the fund’s failure. The Mauritius Financial Services Commission does not vouch for the financial soundness of the fund nor for the correctness of any statements made or opinions expressed regarding it. In certain circumstances, a participant’s right to redeem his shares may be suspended.
Applicants are assumed to have read and understood the prospectus and accept the risk of an investment in the Fund. It is understood that they are aware that the portfolio of securities is subject to market fluctuations and to the risks inherent in all investments, and that the price of shares and any income from the shares may go down as well as up, and that the fund may be subject to volatile price movements which may result in capital loss.
Past performance does not predict future returns. No guarantee is provided, either with respect to the capital or the return of the fund. The value of participatory interests or the investments may fluctuate in value and may fall as well as rise. A schedule of fees, charges, maximum commissions, and a detailed description of performance fee calculation and application is available on request. Excessive withdrawals from the fund may place the fund under liquidity pressure and in such circumstances, a process of ring-fencing withdrawal instructions and managed pay-outs may be followed. Commission and incentives may be paid and if so, will be included in overall costs. Actual investment performance will differ based on the initial fees applicable, the actual investment date and the date of reinvestment of income.
Fund valuations take place at approximately 23h30 GMT on each business day and forward pricing is used. Instructions must reach the Manager before 16h00 (MUT) on the dealing date. You can expect to receive withdrawal pay-outs five business days after the dealing day. Large investments or redemptions (exceeding 5% of fund value) may be subject to an anti-dilution levy to defray dealing costs and expenses. This levy, where applicable, is applied fully for the benefit of the fund. A schedule of fees and charges and maximum commissions is available on request from the CIS Manager.
Dealing prices are calculated on a net asset value and auditor’s fees, bank charges and trustee fees are levied against the portfolios. Performance is calculated for the fund as well as the individual investor. Income distributions are included in the performance calculations. Any investment performance is for illustrative purposes only. Any investment performance is calculated after taking the actual initial fees and all ongoing fees into account.
The reinvestment of income is calculated on the actual amount distributed per participatory interest by using the ex-dividend date NAV price of the applicable class of the portfolio, irrespective of the actual reinvestment date. The value of participatory interests or the investment may go down as well as up. The CIS Manager does not provide any guarantee either with respect to the capital or the return of a portfolio. All CIS are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending. Income is reinvested on the investment date. The CIS Manager has the right to close the portfolio to new investors in order to manage it more efficiently in accordance with its mandate.
A schedule of fees and charges, maximum commissions and a schedule of similarities and differences is available on request from the CIS Manager.
Total Expense Ratio (TER) is calculated as a percentage of the average net asset value of the portfolio incurred as charges, levies and fees in the management of the portfolio. The TER charged by any underlying fund held as part of a fund’s portfolio is included in the fund expenses portion of the TER, but trading and implementation costs incurred in managing the fund is included. A higher TER does not necessarily imply a poor return, nor does a low TER imply a good return. The current TER may not necessarily be an accurate indication of future TER’s. The 1-year TER is for the 12 months to end of December (updated annually). The 3-year TER is for a rolling 36-month period to the last year end. Transaction costs are a necessary cost in managing a fund and impacts the fund’s return. They should not be considered in isolation as returns may be impacted by many other factors over time including market returns, the type of fund, the investment decisions of the investment manager and the TER. The Total Investment Charge is the sum of the Total Expense Ratio (TER) and transaction costs.
