What is a representative fund or share class?
A representative fund is designated as the most appropriate fund representation for a strategy.
Similarly a representative share class is the most appropriate reflection of the underlying share classes of a fund.
This is useful where an object has multiple children linked to it. It provides an opportunity to specify the fund or share class that a research organisation, for example, should focus on to best understand the investment vehicles within the strategy or fund.
Representative funds and share classes are still fund and share class objects so have identical fields to other funds and share classes.
