The BCI Sands Capital Emerging Markets Feeder Fund aims to provide investors with long term capital growth. The portfolio will apart from assets in liquid form, invest solely in the participatory interests of the Sands Capital Emerging Markets Growth Fund, a sub-fund of Sands Capital Funds Plc, domiciled in Ireland. The underlying portfolio invests primarily in emerging markets equity securities.
To the extent that the assets in the portfolio are exposed to exchange rate risk, the manager may enter into financial transactions for the exclusive purpose of hedging such exchange rate risk subject to the conditions and limits as stipulated by the Act. Nothing in this Supplemental Deed shall preclude the manager and the underlying manager from varying the ratios of securities or assets in liquid form in a changing economic environment or market conditions, or to meet the requirements in terms of legislation and from retaining cash or placing cash on deposit in terms of the Deed and this Supplemental Deed.
The Trustee shall ensure that the investment policy set out in this Supplemental Deed is carried out. For the purpose of this portfolio, the manager shall reserve the right to close the portfolio to new investors on a date determined by the manager. This will be done in order to be able to manage the portfolio in accordance with its mandate. The manager may, once a portfolio has been closed, open that portfolio again to new investors on a date determined by the manager.
