Performance data quoted is based on average annualized returns and net of fees.

The source for all performance and index data is Morgan Stanley Investment Management Limited.

Past performance is not indicative of future results. The value of the investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and an investor may not get back the amount invested. Returns may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. Performance data for funds with less than one year's track record is not shown. Performance is calculated net of fees. YTD performance data is not annualised. Performance of other share classes, when offered, may differ. Please consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the fund carefully before investing. The prospectus and key facts statement (KFS) contains this and other information about the fund. Please read the prospectus and KFS carefully before you invest.

The MSCI EM Europe, Middle East Index captures large and mid-cap representation across 8 Emerging Markets (EM) countries in Europe and Middle East.

The MSCI Emerging Markets Europe, Middle East and Africa Net Index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of the emerging market countries of Europe, the Middle East & Africa.

The MSCI Frontier Emerging Markets Net Index is a free float adjusted market capitalization index designed to serve as a benchmark covering all countries from the MSCI Frontier Markets Index and the lower size spectrum of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.

The indexes are unmanaged and do not include any expenses, fees or sales charges. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

Entry Charge is a maximum possible figure. In some cases you might pay less, you can find this out from your financial adviser. Ongoing Charges reflect the payments and expenses incurred during the fund's operation and are deducted from the assets of the fund over the period. It includes fees paid for investment management (Management Fee), trustee/custodian, and administration charges. The Minimum Initial Investment/Minimum Subsequent Investment amounts may be in US Dollars (or the Euro Yen or Sterling equivalent of the US Dollar amount). For more information please see the Charges and Expenses section of the prospectus.

These include commercial paper, open FX transactions, Treasury bills and other short-term instruments.  Such instruments are considered cash equivalents because they are deemed liquid and not subject to significant risk of changes in values.

This communication was issued by Morgan Stanley Asia Limited for use in Hong Kong, and its contents have not been reviewed by the Securities & Futures Commission of Hong Kong.

Only A and C share classes of the Fund are authorized by the Securities & Futures Commission of Hong Kong to be offered to the public in Hong Kong. 

WAM is the weighted average maturity of the portfolio. The WAM calculation utilizes the interest-rate reset date, rather than a security's stated final maturity, for variable- and floating- rate securities. By looking to a portfolio's interest rate reset schedule in lieu of final maturity dates, the WAM measure effectively captures a fund's exposure to interest rate movements and the potential price impact resulting from interest rate movements.

 

WAL is the weighted average life of the portfolio. The WAL calculation utilizes a security's stated final maturity date or, when relevant, the date of the next demand feature when the fund may receive payment of principal and interest (such as a put feature). Accordingly, WAL reflects how a portfolio would react to deteriorating credit (widening spreads) or tightening liquidity conditions.
