Performance and exposure disclaimers

1. Past performance (actual or simulated) is not a reliable indicator of future results. Periods greater than one year are annualised, dividends reinvested, index gross. The value of an investment in the Fund may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Changes in rates of exchange between currencies may cause the value of investments to decrease or increase. 2. All performance statistics shown over rolling 3 years (or 1 year where 3 years of data is not yet available). Sharpe ratio assumes the US 3-month T-Bill risk free rate. 3. Duration and Yield statistics include all positions with a verified duration and yield figure, subject to the exclusion of defaulted positions. Bond securities with less than 1 year to maturity show yield to maturity on a non-annualised basis. 4. Theme values have been rebased to 100% based on the theme type of the underlying fund instruments. 5. Currency and country exposures may be reduced by active FX hedging (if applicable). 6. Credit ratings are based on issuers with a rating, figures provided are based on the middle of the three rating agencies S&P, Moody's and Fitch. If only two of the ratings are available then the lower rating of the two will be used. Percentages gross to 100%, where applicable. 7. Top 10 holdings do not include derivatives apart from total return swaps and p-notes. 8. For investments in Ashmore managed funds (where applicable), allocation and holdings information is shown on a "look through" basis, whereas attribution information is not shown on a look through basis. 9. Hedged benchmarks are used where applicable. 10. Attribution is reported Gross and shown in USD terms unless otherwise stated. 11. Ongoing Charges Figure (OCF) as at 31.12.2023. 12. A dash (-) represents zero holding. 0.0 and 0.00 represents a fractional holding. 13. Ashmore's Fund yield to maturity (YTM) calculation methodology differs from the calculation methodology used for the index. Ashmore's fund YTM assumes zero yield for defaulted securities, whereas JP Morgan uses a yield for defaulted securities, which inflates the index yield to maturity. Additionally, please note that Ashmore's reported YTM for fund and index are calculated on a 'weighted average security yield' basis per market convention, whereas the JP Morgan Index Monitor calculates YTM using the IRR of the underlying index security cashflows. Sources are Ashmore, data provider or administrator where appropriate.

Risk Warning: Emerging Markets (EM) carry risks as well as rewards. The fund invests in EM, which may be more volatile than more mature markets, and the value of an investment in the fund could move sharply down or up. In extreme circumstances, this could result in a total loss of the investment. EM may suffer from liquidity problems; changes in rates of exchange between currencies may cause the value of investments to decrease or increase; the operational risks of investing are higher than in more developed markets. For a full description of these and further risks, investors should refer to the fund’s latest Scheme Particulars or (if applicable) other offering document. Please also read the important information outlined overleaf in conjunction with the latest Scheme Particulars or (if applicable) other offering document before investing.
