Important Notes:

1) The fund seeks to increase the value of its assets over the medium term by investing primarily in Environmental Markets companies.

2) The fund has significant exposure to a single sector and is likely to be subject to a greater concentration risk and higher volatility than a more diversified investment.

3) The fund has significant equity exposure. Risks of equity market may include significant fluctuations in prices, negative information about the issuer or market. Fluctuations are often amplified in the short term.

4) The management company may at its discretion pay dividends out of the capital of the fund. Payment of dividends out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any distributions involving payment of dividends out of the fund’s capital may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per share.

5) The monthly distribution share classes will continue to distribute monthly dividends in periods when the fund has negative return, which will further reduce the net asset value of the fund.

6) Investors should not solely rely on this document to make any investment decision. Please refer to the Hong Kong offering document for further information (including the risk factors) about the fund.

Opportunity

Environmental protection is no longer just a priority. It is an imperative – as world population growth, rising living standards, climate change and pollution are hastening environmental degradation and placing a strain on finite resources.

As the world transitions towards a more sustainable global economy, the search for cleaner sources of energy and the development of more environmentally-efficient technologies are requirements in many areas, from transport, real estate, electronics, packaging, farming to water.

With support from consumer interest and government policies, environmental markets can thrive and have the potential to benefit from high growth over the long term due to the massive investment needed to meet these challenges.
