Eastspring Investments Unit Trusts - Global Technology Fund

Seeking to invest in innovative technology companies?

Eastspring Investments Unit Trusts - Global Technology Fund aims to maximise total return through investment in companies with innovative products, processes or services. It offers investors the unique opportunity to ride on the innovative spirit of cutting-edge companies around the world.


Why the technology-focus?

The spirit of innovation has led to amazing technological breakthroughs that change the way we live, work and play. Today, more than ever, technology drives human endeavour in all major fields.


Investment approach

The technology team of the Investment Sub-Manager employs a "bottom up" Investment Strategy with the aim to outperform the market consistently. Each stock is subjected to rigorous analysis to determine its potential to deliver the best returns for investors.

The technology team views technology stocks as global, rather than country specific. Although geographical exposure does matter to the extent  that economic data vary from region to region as well as from sector to sector, there are two key characteristics which the technology team observes on technology products:

  1. the relative ease with which products can be exported; and
  2. the speed with which such products can be improved upon, taking into account the technological lifecycle of the company.

In normal market conditions (and subject to liquidity and/or market risk hedging considerations arising from issuance, switching or redemption of the shares of the Sub-Fund), the Sub-Fund will invest at least two thirds of its total assets in equity securities and equity related instruments (excluding convertible debt securities); and in such conditions any other types of transferable securities, including but not limited to convertible bonds, other debt securities and money market instruments held by the Sub-Fund will amount to no more in aggregate than one third of the Sub-Fund's total assets.

The Sub-Fund may also invest in global, American, European, transferable or other depository receipts. These qualify as participation certificates.
