When the appropriation price is applied the value of the assets will be calculated as the Market/Fair value of the fund's investments plus expenses incurred in the purchase of the assets plus value of any current assets plus any accrued income net of fund management charge less the value of any current liabilities less provisions, if any.
When expropriation price is applied the value of the assets will be calculated as the Market/Fair value of the fund's investments less expenses incurred in the sale of the assets plus value of any current assets plus any accrued income net of fund management charge less the value of any current liabilities less provisions, if any.
