The investment objective of the Fund is to replicate the performance of the MSCI World Index (the ?Index?), while minimizing as far as possible the tracking error between the Fund?s performance and that of the Index. The Index is a market-capitalization weighted index designed to measure the performance of the largest companies of the world?s developed equity markets, including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Israel, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and USA, as defined by the Index Provider. In seeking to achieve its investment objective, the Fund will use optimization techniques which take account of tracking error and trading costs when constructing a portfolio. Consequently, the Fund may not hold each of the underlying Index constituents or hold Index constituents close to their Index weights.
