Performance data are computed on NAV-NAV basis with dividend reinvested, and in the respective currency terms as stated. Past performance is not indicative of the future returns.

All Fund prices quoted are calculated as at the latest valuation date. They are not indicative of the likely trend or price of the Fund(s) in the future. Investors investing in Fund(s) denominated in non-local currency should be aware of exchange rate fluctuations that may cause a loss of principal when foreign currency is converted back to the investors' home currency. Exchange controls may be applicable from time to time to certain foreign currencies.

Please refer to the prospectus for details of the investment objectives and risks associated with the Fund(s) mentioned. This document is for general circulation only and it does not have regard to the specific investment objectives, financial situation and particular needs of any specific person who may receive it. You should seek advice from a financial adviser before investing in the Fund(s). If you choose not to seek advice from a financial adviser, you should consider whether the Fund(s) in question is suitable for you. This document cannot be construed as an advice or recommendation.

FIL Investment Management (Singapore) Limited [“FIMSL”] (Co. Reg. No.: 199006300E) is the representative for the Fund(s) offered in Singapore. Potential investors should read the prospectus, available from FIMSL or its distributors, before investing in the Fund(s). The value of the shares of the Fund(s) and the income accruing to them, if any, may fall or rise. The Fund(s) may use financial derivatives, which entail specific risks as described in the prospectus.

References to specific securities are for illustrative purposes only and should not be construed as recommendation or advice to transact in them.

Please note that the information provided is as of the stated date and may subsequently change in the future without prior notice.

Please note that the dividend rate of the Fund does not represent its total return. The dividends are not guaranteed and may vary from time to time. For certain Classes of Shares, dividends may be paid out of capital where the income/capital gain generated by the Fund is insufficient to pay a distribution as declared. Investors should note that the payment of dividends out of capital represents a return or withdrawal of part of the amount they originally invested or from any capital gains attributable to the original investment. Such distributions may result in an immediate decrease in the net asset value per Share of the Fund.

The benchmark was changed from Standard & Poor's 500 Total Return (S&P 500) Gross Index to S&P 500 Total Return Net Index in March 2011. The index performance shown will be adjusted using the Standard and Poor's 500 Total Return Net Index from 31 December 1998, the date when such index was first introduced. The reason for the change is that the Standard and Poor's 500 Total Return Net Index calculates performance net of withholding tax, which is more comparable with the calculation of the performance of the fund which is also net of withholding tax.
