  • The Fund is a sub-fund of Legg Mason Global Funds plc, an open-ended umbrella investment company constituted in Ireland. The Fund seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation by investing at least two-thirds of its Net Asset Value in shares of companies domiciled in or conducting a predominant portion of their economic activities in one or more Asian countries which are listed in the prospectus as well as Australia and New Zealand. In addition, the Fund may, from time to time, invest in shares of companies domiciled in Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

  • The Fund may invest in emerging markets which involve special risks, including liquidity, volatility, currency, political, economic, legal and regulatory risks. 
  • Securities of smaller companies generally are less liquid and more volatile than those of larger companies; and smaller companies generally are more likely to be adversely affected by poor economic or market conditions.
