Performance data quoted represents past performance. PAST PERFORMANCE DOES NOT GUARANTEE FURTURE RESULTS. Performance data current to the most recent month-end may be obtained by emailing ucits@gqgpartners.com or visiting gqgpartners.com. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Returns greater than one year are annualized. Performance may reflect agreements to limit a fund’s expenses, which would further reduce performance if not in effect. Returns are calculated net of taxes withheld on foreign dividends, interest, and capital gains, and include reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Dividends accrued as of ex-dividend date. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. The performance data contained herein is calculated by a data provider whose calculation methodology may result in Fund performance that is lower or higher than performance quoted in Fund reports.

*GQG Partners LLC is committed to keep the ongoing charge from exceeding the expense limitation and this commitment may be lifted at any time upon prior notice to shareholders. Ongoing charge is as of the previous month-end date. The ongoing charge is exclusive of performance fee for applicable share classes.

There are 100 basis points (bps) in 1%. One basis point is one one-hundredth of one per cent.

The S&P 500 Index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization index that is designed to measure equity market performance of US companies. The index is unmanaged, and does not include the effect of fees. It is not possible to invest directly in an index. Net total return indices reinvest dividends after the deduction of withholding taxes, using (for international indices) a tax rate applicable to nonresident institutional investors who do not benefit from double taxation treaties. Information about benchmark indices is provided to allow you to compare it to the performance of GQG strategies. Investors often use these well-known and widely recognized indices as one way to gauge the investment performance of an investment manager’s strategy compared to investment sectors that correspond to the strategy. However, GQG’s investment strategies are actively managed and not intended to replicate the performance of the indices: the performance and volatility of GQG’s investment strategies may differ materially from the performance and volatility of their benchmark indices, and their holdings will differ significantly from the securities that comprise the indices. You cannot invest directly in indices, which do not take into account trading commissions and costs.
