The Funds investment objective is to achieve capital appreciation through participation in the growth of the Japanese economy. Investment will be based primarily on Japans economic strengths, such as its manufacturing industry (in particular on those parts of it that are demonstrating an ability to exploit newly emerging technology) and on sectors benefiting from structural change in the economy. Investment will be in directly held transferable securities. The Fund may also invest in collective investment schemes, warrants and money market instruments.
