Tactical asset allocation strategies may be applied, which involves the fund adjusting its exposure to asset classes on a regular basis within the investment guidelines.
Currency is managed at the underlying fund level, taking into account currency exposure arising from underlying investments. Currency management is used to either hedge currency for an existing position or create an exposure to a foreign currency. Exposure to foreign currency will be limited to 50% of the gross asset value of the underlying fund.
