Nomura Funds Ireland plc is authorised by the Central Bank of Ireland as an open-ended umbrella investment company with variable capital and segregated liability between its sub-funds, established as an undertaking for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities under the European Communities (Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities) Regulations 2011. 

The prospectus, key investor information document (KIID) and other fund related materials are available in English and, for the KIID, in the official language of the countries in which the fund is available for distribution on the Nomura Asset Management U.K. Ltd. website at Any decision to invest in any fund should be made solely by reference to, and strictly in accordance with, the information, terms and conditions contained in the Prospectus and Application Form. Before deciding to invest, investors should carefully consider the product’s investment objectives, risks and expenses and other information as set out in Prospectus and Application Form. 

Past performance is not a guide to future performance; the value of an investment and income from it can go down as well as up. 

The fund may invest in Emerging Markets and High Yield debt securities which tend to be more volatile than those of more developed capital markets or investment grade securities so any investment is at greater risk. The strategy may invest in derivatives including (but not limited) to futures, forwards, options, swaps and swaptions. Some of these securities are exchange traded, others are not. Derivatives traded on an exchange are guaranteed by the exchange. Derivatives that are not exchange traded carry risk of default by the counterparty. In almost all cases (other than long positions in options), the derivatives used may result in losses greater than the amount of the original investment.
