Guidance

1. Pursuant to Section 117 of FSMR, the Regulator has the power to make a direction if a name of a Fund, Sub-Fund or class of Units in a Fund is undesirable, misleading or conflicts with a name used by another Fund, Sub-Fund or class of Units of a Fund.
2. In determining whether to make a direction under these powers, the matters that the Regulator may take into account include whether the name of the Fund, Sub-Fund or class of Units as the case may be:
a. implies that the Fund, Sub-Fund or class of Units has merits which are not, or might not be, justified;
b. is inconsistent with the Fund's investment objectives or policy;
c. might mislead Unitholders or prospective Unitholders into thinking that a Person other than the Fund Manager is responsible for the Fund, Sub-Fund or class of Units of the Fund;
d. is substantially similar to the name of another Fund in the Abu Dhabi Global Market or elsewhere; or
e. is in the opinion of the Regulator likely to offend the public.
