(each a "Sub-Fund" and together referred to the "Sub-Funds")

24 November 2014

The board of directors of the Company hereby informs the shareholders of the Sub-Funds that China Securities Index Co., Ltd (the "Index Provider") has announced that it will make certain changes to the index methodology of the Reference Index of each of the Sub-Funds as described below with effect from 15 December 2014 (the "Effective Date").

The Index Provider has provided the following details in relation to the change:

The selection universe of the Reference Index (the "Selection Universe") includes all the A shares (each a "Stock") listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange or the Shenzhen Stock Exchange satisfying certain conditions.

Prior to the Effective Date, such conditions were as follows:

1. The Stock has been listed for more than three months at the time it is considered for inclusion in the Reference Index. If it has been listed for less than three months, it will be considered for inclusion in the Selection Universe if its daily average total market value since its initial listing has ranked within the top 30 companies in all the A shares;

2. The Stock is not designated for special treatment or potential delisting by any of CSRC, the Shanghai Stock Exchange or the Shenzhen Stock Exchange as a result of continuous financial losses;

3. The company issuing the Stock has good performance without serious financial problems or any history of breach of laws and/or regulations in the most recent year;

4. The Stock price does not show strong evidence of price manipulation, e.g. a large price volatility;

5. The Stock is not considered as inappropriate for inclusion in the Reference Index by the Index Advisory Committee.

With effect from the Effective Date, such conditions will be as follows:

1. (a) If the Stock is not listed on the ChiNext, such Stock has been listed for more than three months at the time it is considered for inclusion in the Reference Index. If it has been listed for less than three months, it will be considered for inclusion in the Selection Universe if its daily average total market value since its initial listing has ranked within the top 30 companies in all the A shares;

(b) If the Stock is listed on the ChiNext, such Stock has been listed for more than three years at the time it is considered for inclusion in the Reference Index;

2. The company issuing the Stock has good performance without serious financial problems or any history of breach of laws and/or regulations in the most recent year;

3. The Stock is not designated for special treatment or potential delisting by any of CSRC, the Shanghai Stock Exchange or the Shenzhen Stock Exchange as a result of continuous financial losses.

Further information in relation to the change may be obtained at the website of the Index Provider: http://www.csindex.com.cn.

For the avoidance of doubt, shareholders should note that the Investment Objective, the Investment Policy and the Reference Index of each Sub-Fund will remain unchanged (with the exception of the change described above).

Capitalised terms not defined herein shall have the meaning given to them in the Prospectus.

If you have any queries or if any of the above is not clear you should seek advice from your stockbroker, bank manager, legal adviser, accountant or other independent financial advisor. Shareholders should also consult their own professional advisers as to the specific tax implications under the laws of the countries of their nationality, residence, domicile or incorporation.
