Retail and institutional share classes will be offered with minimum investment amounts of US$5,000 and US$1m respectively. The annual management charge is 1.5% for the retail share class and 0.75% for the institutional share class. Share classes are denominated in US dollars, euro, sterling and Singapore dollars.
