Investor Suitability

Investor profile
The fund is suitable for investors who are looking for a source of income and long term capital growth through exposure primarily to the Asia Pacific region (excluding Japan) and have at least, a three to five year investment horizon.

Key risks
The value of your investment may fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested. The fund may have a higher volatility to its net asset value due to its investment policy when compared to funds investing in global markets, with broader investment policies and/or are a less volatile asset class. “(Mth)” and “(irc)” share classes give priority to dividends, rather than to capital growth. Further, investors should note that for share classes A (mth) – SGD, A (mth) – SGD (Hedged), A (irc) – AUD (Hedged), A (mth) – USD and A (dist) – USD, dividends may in certain circumstances be paid out of the share class capital and reduce the net asset value of that share class.

Returns to investors will vary from year to year, depending on dividend income and capital returns generated by the underlying financial assets. Capital returns may be negative in some years and dividends are not guaranteed. The value of equity securities may go down as well as up in response to the performance of individual companies and general market conditions. The value of debt securities may change significantly depending on economic and interest rate conditions as well as the credit worthiness of the issuer. Emerging markets may be subject to increased political, regulatory and economic instability, less developed custody and settlement practices, poor transparency and greater financial risks. Emerging market currencies may be subject to volatile price movements. Emerging market and below investment grade debt securities may also be subject to higher volatility and lower liquidity than non emerging market and investment grade debt securities respectively. The fund may be concentrated in industry sectors and/or countries and as a result, may be more volatile than more broadly diversified funds.

Issuers of debt securities may fail to meet payment obligations or the credit rating of debt securities may be downgraded. These risks are typically increased for emerging market and below investment grade debt securities.

Movements in currency exchange rates can adversely affect the return of your investment. Where a purchase involves a foreign exchange transaction, it may be subject to the fluctuations of currency values. The fund may investment in assets denominated in any currency and currency exposure may not be hedged for the shares on offer in Singapore. In addition, the net asset value of the AUD and USD denominated Share Classes are not denominated in SGD. Accordingly, foreign currency exchange rate movements are likely to influence your returns, and you may be exposed to exchange rate risks.

Please refer to the JPMorgan Funds Singapore Offering Document and the fund’s Product Highlight Sheet for further information on the fund and the risks associated.
