Objective

The sub-fund will mainly be invested in shares of companies in emerging or developing countries, whether in Latin America, Asia (excluding Japan), Eastern Europe, the Middle East or Africa. If the market in an emerging or developing country cannot be considered as regulated, investments in this market are limited to 10% of net assets of the subfund. Long exposure to equities markets may vary between 50% and 100%. Short exposure may vary between 0% and 100%. The portfolio is rebalanced monthly to be as close as possible to zero beta, without using a reference benchmark.
