* The returns shown are gross of all fees, meaning they do not reflect the deduction of any investment management fees which would reduce returns and assume reinvestment of distribution. Excess Return is the difference between the Fund’s gross return and its benchmark. Investment in the fund is not available on a fee free basis and this should be factored into any analysis of past performance. For information on returns which take into account fees and expenses (net returns), please refer to the Fund’s monthly and quarterly investment commentaries (which can be found here).
