  • What is the Fund’s objective?

    The fund aims to generate capital growth over the long term (five years or more) by investing at least 80% of the fund in the shares of companies throughout Asia (excluding Japan) and Australasia. It can also invest in companies that conduct the majority of their business activities in these countries. Investments are chosen based purely on a company’s individual merits. The fund manager focuses on firms that are run for the benefit of their shareholders and whose future profitability, in his opinion, is not fully appreciated by other investors. He has an investment horizon of three to five years and selects stocks with different drivers of profitability to construct a diversified portfolio that has the potential to cope in a variety of market conditions.
