Footnote: DBS FST Fund Ratings The DBS FST currently covers over 300 funds. The team will review and assign an appropriate rating to each fund.

This rating reflects the team’s assessment of the fund’s competitive advantage and represents the level of conviction that the team has with respect to the fund performing well relative to its peers and its assigned asset class benchmark over the next 18 to 36 months.

Investors should, however, note that the DBS FST Fund Rating is not a view on funds as an asset class nor is it a guarantee of a fund’s performance.
