BU Fund Series OFC
BU Fund Series OFC is a Hong Kong open-ended public fund company regulated under the laws of Hong Kong with variable capital and limited liability and segregated liability between sub-funds. *
A sub-fund’s investment portfolio may fall in value, and therefore investor’s investment in the sub-fund may suffer losses. There is no guarantee of the repayment of principal.
A sub-fund may be subject to general investment and market risks, custody risks, equity investment risks, volatility risk, risk associated with small-capitalisation/mid-capitalisation companies and risk of investing in IPO.
A sub-fund that invests in debt securities is subject to interest rate, credit/ counterparty, downgrading, below investment grade & non-rated securities risk, volatility and liquidity, sovereign debt, valuation and credit rating risks.
A sub-fund may be subject to risks associated with debt instruments with loss-absorption features, dim-sum bond market risks, risks associated with China Interbank Bond Market, risks of investing in urban investment bonds.
Sub-fund that invests in certain PRC securities may be subject to withholding and other taxes imposed in the PRC.
A sub-fund may be subject to concentration/China and Asia market risk, emerging market risk, currency risk, derivative risk, currency hedging risk, RMB currency and conversion risks.
The manager may at its discretion make distribution from income and/or capital in respect of the distributing classes of the Fund. Distributions paid out of the capital amount to a return or withdrawal of part of the shareholder’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any such distributions may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per share.
A sub-fund involves risk associated with fixed minimum distributions. Investments in classes of shares with fixed minimum distributions of the sub-fund are not an alternative to a savings account or fixed-interest paying investment. The minimum amount of distributions paid by such share classes is unrelated to expected or past income or returns of these share classes or the sub-fund. Such share classes will continue to distribute in periods that the sub-fund has negative returns or is making losses, which further reduces the net asset value of the sub-fund. The class of shares with minimum distribution amounts will be fixed at the discretion of the Directors in terms of the relevant class currency and will not take into account the fluctuations in the exchange rate between the base currency of the sub-fund and the relevant class currency (if applicable) subsequent to the determination of the fixed minimum amount of distributions in terms of the relevant class currency.
* It is registered with the Securities & Futures Commission under the Securities & Future Ordinance of Hong Kong (registration number: OF4) with registered office at 5/F, The Bank of East Asia Building, 10 Des Voeux Road Central, Hong Kong
BEA Union Investment Capital Growth Fund
BEA Union Investment Capital Growth Fund is an approved pooled investment fund umbrella which has within it different investment funds investing in equities or bonds, each with a different risk profile.
An investment fund which invests in a single market may be subject to higher concentration risk than investment funds which invest in a number of different markets.
Some of the investment funds investing in emerging markets are higher risk than those investing in more established markets. Emerging markets may involve additional market, currency, legal and regulatory and liquidity risks. The high volatility in such markets could result in the investors suffering substantial losses.
BEA Union Investment Series
BEA Union Investment Series as an umbrella fund has within it different sub-funds investing in equities and/or bonds, each with a different risk profile.
Sub-funds which invest in emerging markets may be subject to higher liquidity and volatility risks, while sub-funds which invest in a particular market or sector may be subject to higher concentration risk than funds following a more diversified policy.
Sub-funds which invest in lower-rated fixed income instruments, including below investment grade and non-rated debt securities, are subject to greater credit and liquidity risks than higher-rated securities.
Sub-funds may invest primarily in securities denominated in RMB or have exposure to RMB. It should be noted that the RMB is currently not a freely convertible currency as it is subject to foreign exchange control policies of the Chinese government. In addition, there can be no assurance that the RMB will not be subject to devaluation. Any devaluation of RMB could adversely affect the value of investors’ investments.
In terms of currency hedged class units of sub-funds, adverse exchange rate fluctuations between the base currency of the sub-fund and the class currency of the currency hedged class units may result in a decrease in return and/or loss of capital for unitholders. Over-hedged or under-hedged positions may arise and there can be no assurance that these currency hedged class units will be hedged at all times or that the manager will be successful in employing the hedge.
Investors may invest in RMB (Hedged) units of sub-funds. It should be noted that the RMB is currently not a freely convertible currency as it is subject to foreign exchange control policies of the Chinese government. There is also no assurance that the RMB will not be subject to devaluation. Any devaluation of the RMB could adversely affect the value of investors’ investments. There is no guarantee that the hedging strategy will be effective and investors may still be subject to the RMB currency exchange risk.
Sub-funds may enter into futures contracts and/or currency forward contracts for hedging and/or investment purposes. Given the leverage effect embedded in futures and currency forward contracts, a sub-fund may be exposed to significant losses.
The manager may at its discretion make distributions from income and/or capital in respect of the distributing classes of certain sub-funds. Investors should note that the distributions paid out of capital amount to a return or withdrawal of part of the unitholder’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Such distribution may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per unit.
BEA Union Investment China A-Share Equity Fund will invest at least 70% of its assets in China A-Shares, primarily through a qualified foreign institutional investors (“QFII”) which is subject to applicable regulations imposed by the PRC authorities, including among others, repatriation restrictions, which may subject the sub-fund to significant liquidity risk. In addition to the use of QFII quotas, the sub-fund may have direct exposure to certain eligible China A shares via the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect which is subject to different risks, including quota limitations, clearing and settlement risk. Investment in the sub-fund involves significant risks relating to the PRC, including, among others, emerging market risks, social, political and regulatory risks. Given the significant risks associated with investing in China A-Shares, the sub-fund may be exposed to significant losses.
BEA Union Investment China A-Share Equity Fund may be subject to the risks associated with changes in the PRC laws and regulations, including PRC tax laws, and such changes may have retrospective effect and adversely impact the sub-fund. The manager currently intends to make provisions for any PRC taxes payable by the Fund on (i) interests from RMB Bonds and (ii) dividends derived from PRC Equity Securities (including China A-Shares acquired through the Stock Connect), at a rate of 10%, if the relevant tax is not withheld at source. Such provisions may be excessive or inadequate to meet the actual tax liabilities. In case of any shortfall between the provisions and actual tax liabilities, which will be debited from the sub-fund's assets, the sub-fund's asset value will be adversely affected.
