Emerging Markets Great Consumer VIT Fund

Investment Strategy

The Fund seeks to achieve long-term capital growth.

  • Mirae Asset’s Great Consumer® investment strategy responds to the long-term and sustainable megatrend in emerging markets created by the newfound purchasing power of the rising middle class.
  • The burgeoning megatrend will be further driven by population size, economic growth, urbanization, income expansion and younger workforces across emerging economies.
  • The Great Consumer investment strategy seeks to identify those high-quality companies that can capitalize on this new and growing consumer base.
  • The Fund seeks investment opportunities beyond the consumer staples and discretionary sectors by investing across a range of industry sectors that may benefit from increasing consumption.

Risk Factors

Equity Securities (stocks) are more volatile and carry more risk than other forms of investments, including investments in high-grade fixed income securities. The net asset value per share of this Fund will fluctuate as the value of the securities in the portfolio changes.

Emerging Market investing may be subject to additional economic, political, legal, liquidity, and currency risks not associated with more developed countries.

Geographic Concentration Risk — A small number of companies and industries may represent a large portion of the market in a particular country or region, and these companies and industries can be sensitive to adverse social, political, economic or regulatory developments in that country or region.
