The fund is an exchange traded fund (ETF) that aims to achieve a return on your investment, through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund's assets, which reflects the return of the MSCI Emerging Markets Minimum Volatility Index, the Fund's benchmark index. The Fund invests in equity securities (e.g. shares) that, so far as possible and practicable, make up the benchmark index. The benchmark index aims to reflect the performance characteristics of a subset of securities within the MSCI Emerging Markets Index (Parent Index) with the lowest absolute volatility of returns, subject to risk diversification. The constituents of the benchmark index are selected using a minimum volatility strategy which selects securities from the Parent Index based on estimates of the risk profile and expected volatility of each constituent and the correlation between all constituents in the Parent Index.
