The Maxima strategy uses a number of machine-learning algorithms to pick stocks. They work by taking a large amount of historical data on the universe of global company shares, and combining that with the knowledge of how each stock performed. Having been trained, the algorithms are given live data. They analyse this to rank each of the stocks that we might invest in, according to their likelihood of outperforming in the future. From this a portfolio of highest-scoring stocks is constructed subject to industry and country limits that ensure portfolio diversification is maintained.
P/E = price-earnings ratio; P/B: price-to-book ratio; DCF = discounted cashflow. These are all types of valuation methods.
Alpha score = Indicates how much a stock outperforms the market average.

The value and income from the fund’s assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise. There is no guarantee that the fund will achieve its objective and you may get back less than you originally invested.
The fund can be exposed to different currencies. Movements in currency exchange rates may adversely affect the value of your investment.
Investing in emerging markets involves a greater risk of loss due to greater political, tax, economic, foreign exchange, liquidity and regulatory risks, among other factors. There may be difficulties in buying, selling, safekeeping or valuing investments in such countries.
The fund may invest in China A shares. Investments in assets from China are subject to changeable political, regulatory and economic conditions, which may cause difficulties when selling or collecting income from these investments. In addition, such investment is made via the Stock Connect system, which may be more susceptible to clearing, settlement and counterparty risk. These factors could cause the fund to incur a loss.
Further details of the risks that apply to the fund can be found in the fund's Key Investor Information Document and Prospectus.
Investing in this fund means acquiring units or shares in a fund, and not in a given underlying asset such as a building or shares of a company, as these are only the underlying assets owned by the fund.
