* Rolling performance : for funds that have been launched since less than 1 year or 3 years or 5 years, the performance shown in the table in the 1 year, 3 years or 5 years column is the performance since launching date of the fund.
All performance figures are calculated in your selected currency based NAV to NAV with gross income accumulated.
Important: Past performance does not guarantee future returns. The value of an investment can rise or fall with market fluctuations, and you may lose the amount originally invested. The value of your investment is dependant of the value of the securities and contracts bought by the fund. The material is based upon information that we consider reliable as of the date shown, but we do not represent that it is accurate, complete, valid or timely, in particular any data communicated to us by a third party, and it should not be relied on as such for any particular purpose. All material is subject to change without any prior notice from us. Investment in a fund gives rise to certain risks.

Both performances for funds and benchmarks are calculated using internal software fed by external sources (mainly Datastream).
