  • Dubai has had a series of real estate booms and busts in the last 20 years and is undergoing a slowdown at present.
  • Within the portfolio, we own a unique retail property operator, with one of the highest quality portfolios in the world.
  • We feel there is nothing happening in Dubai beyond a downturn in the property market, and have confidence that our investments will, in time, prove to be highly profitable.


Past performance is no guarantee of future performance.
The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Investing in companies in emerging markets involves higher risk than investing in established economies or securities markets. Emerging Markets may have less stable legal and political systems, which could affect the safe-keeping or value of assets. The Fund’s investments include shares in small-cap companies and these tend to be traded less frequently and in lower volumes than larger companies making them potentially less liquid and more volatile.
