Smaller companies may be held on an ancillary basis.</p><p>Other instruments as permitted in the stated investment and borrowing powers of the Company including, but not limited to, fixed interest securities, cash and cash equivalents may be held on an ancillary basis, as appropriate.</p><p>The Fund may invest in China A-Shares via the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect program. </p><p>The Fund may invest in assets denominated in any currency and non-Sterling currency exposure will not normally be hedged back to Sterling.</p><p>Risk profileThe value of your investment may fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.</p><p>The value of Equity and Equity-Linked Securities may fluctuate in response to the performance of individual companies and general market conditions.</p><p>Emerging Markets may be subject to increased political, regulatory and economic instability, less developed custody and settlement practices, poor transparency and greater financial risks. Emerging Market currencies may be subject to volatile price movements. Emerging Market securities may also be subject to higher volatility and be more difficult to sell than non-Emerging Market securities.</p><p>The Fund may invest in China A-Shares through the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect program which is subject to regulatory change, quota limitations and also operational constraints which may result in increased counterparty risk.</p><p>Movements in currency exchange rates can adversely affect the return of your investment.</p><p>Please refer to Part 11 of the Prospectus for details of the general risk factors affecting this Fund in addition to the specific risk factors above.</p><p>Fund reviewAfter prolonged weakness relative to developed markets, emerging markets are up strongly over the six months to 31 July 2016, supported by US dollar weakness, commodity price stability and low relative valuations. The asset class has shown resilience to Brexit, while currencies have appreciated in aggregate, supporting returns. </p><p>The Fund delivered outperformance over the six months to 31 July 2016. In Brazil, an overweight position in the market helped performance, as a political shift and rebound in commodity prices resulted in strong market returns while stock selection and an underweight in China also contributed. The Fund was hurt by our Indian overweight. Indian equities have been a long-standing overweight as we are able to find numerous companies that meet our quality standards, given their enduring competitive advantages, strong cash flow generation and skilled management. Our structural underweight to the materials sector detracted, given inconsistent cash flow generation, dependence on commodity prices and pro-cyclical capital allocation that do not fit our criteria for investment. </p><p>Fund outlookEmerging market equities, more than simply participating in the risk-on rally, have outperformed developed markets. The era of monetary accommodation appears to have been extended, following the Brexit vote in late June. What these market moves seem to be signalling is that the persistent underperformance of emerging markets may be behind us. There is some fundamental support for this view: economic growth is showing early signs of bottoming, with purchasing managers indices posting successive improvements in several emerging markets. The key to a sustained recovery in emerging market equities is a recovery in earnings estimates</p><p>JPM Emerging Markets Fund_p1</p><p>You should remember that past performance is not a guide to the future. The price of investments and the income from them may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the full amount invested. </p></li><li><p>JPM Emerging Markets Fund_p2</p><p>12 month performance^ to 31 July2016 2015 2014</p><p>JPM Emerging Markets FundA-Class Acc 22.5% -7.2% 1.6%</p><p>JPM Emerging Markets FundB-Class Acc 23.1% -6.7% 2.1%</p><p>JPM Emerging Markets FundI-Class Acc 23.3% -6.5% 2.3%</p><p>JPM Emerging Markets FundX-Class Inc 24.4% -5.8% </p><p>Benchmark Index 16.7% -6.3% 3.6%</p><p>Six month performance to 31 July 2016Net asset value per </p><p>share</p><p>Net asset value per </p><p>share31.07.16 31.01.16 % Return</p><p>JPM Emerging Markets FundA-Class Acc 173.7p 128.8p 34.86%</p><p>JPM Emerging Markets FundB-Class Acc 236.4p 174.8p 35.24%</p><p>JPM Emerging Markets FundI-Class Acc 676.5p 499.6p 35.41%JPM Emerging Markets FundX-Class Inc 121.5p 89.30p 36.05%</p><p>Benchmark Index 27.70%</p><p>Fund statisticsRisk and Reward Profile 6 (6 at 31 January 2016)</p><p>Fund size 1,090.2m</p><p>Benchmark Index MSCI Emerging Markets Index (Net)</p><p>Fund charges and expenses A-Class B-Class I-Class X-Class</p><p>Initial charge (max.) 3.00% Nil Nil Nil</p><p>Exit charge Nil Nil Nil Nil</p><p>Ongoing charge (comprises) 1.68% 1.18% 1.00% 0.06%A</p><p>Annual management fee 1.50% 1.00% 1.00% 0.00%</p><p>Fixed expenses 0.18% 0.18% 0.00% 0.06%</p><p>Top ten holdings (excluding Liquidity Funds) %Tencent Holdings Ltd. 4.43Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.
