Objectives and Strategy

The Trust seeks capital appreciation over the longer term and aims to outperform its benchmark, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index (in AUD), over full market cycles, typically 3 to 5 years, before taking into account fees and expenses.
The Trust invests in companies in or significantly exposed to Emerging Markets economies that are believed to have sustainably above average revenue, earnings and cash flow growth as a result of the strength and durability of their business franchises, as well as strong management teams. MFS looks to buy these companies at valuations that it considers reasonable relative to the current earnings and cash flows, and that it considers inexpensive relative to their anticipated future characteristics.
