Asia is the world’s fastest-growing economic region and this investment trust looks to capitalise on this by investing not only in the stock markets of the major economies of this region (excluding Japan), China, Hong Kong, and India but also those of the less developed markets such as Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia. It favours smaller companies as this allows it to find mispriced businesses, the “winners of tomorrow”, before they become well known. Indeed, with more than 15,000 listed companies in the region, there are a lot of opportunities for a fundamental research driven stock picker.

Please also remember that the value of investments may fall as well as rise, so you may get back less than you invest. Fidelity offers information and guidance about products and services, but will not give advice based on your circumstances. If you are unsure whether an investment is suitable for you, we recommend that you contact an authorised financial adviser. Finally, the value of investments in overseas markets may be affected by changes in currency exchange rates and as this investment trust invests more heavily than others in smaller companies, it can carry a higher risk because its share price may be more volatile than those of larger companies.
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. Fidelity does not give advice. If you’re unsure of the suitability of an investment for you, you should speak to a financial adviser.
The value of investments can go down as well as up so investors may get back less than they invest. Overseas investments are subject to currency fluctuations. This investment trust can gear through the use of bank loans or overdrafts and this can be achieved through the use of derivatives. Their use may lead to higher volatility in the Net Asset Value and Share Price. This investment trust may invest more heavily than others in smaller companies, which can carry a higher risk because their share prices may be more volatile than those of larger companies. This investment trust is also able to invest some or all of its assets in developing overseas markets which carry a higher risk than investing in larger established markets. Investments in emerging markets are likely to experience greater rises and falls in value and there may be trading difficulties.
