Name change for the Scottish Equitable First State Asia Pacific Leaders fund

Back to results

On 8 February 2015, the name of the Scottish Equitable First State Asia Pacific Leaders fund will change to the Scottish Equitable Stewart Investors Asia Pacific Leaders fund. 

In line with this change, the fund’s short name, which appears on investor statements, will also change. 

These changes are reflected in the table below:

Old fund name New fund name
Scottish Equitable First State Asia Pacific Leaders fund Scottish Equitable Stewart Investors Asia Pacific leaders fund
Old short name New short Name
SE First State Asia PL SE Stewart Inv APL

Why is the fund name changing? 

First State, the manager of the underlying fund, has made the decision to change the name of the underlying fund to Stewart Investors Asia Pacific Leaders fund to correspond with a recent structural change to the business. 

As a result, to avoid confusing investors, we’re updating our fund name to ensure it remains consistent with the underlying fund.

What does this mean for investors? 

Nothing else will change; the fund objective, management, risk profile and charges will remain the same.
