Fund Profile

Category: SICAV

The fund aims to provide a combination of capital growth and income to deliver a return that is higher than that of the Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) stockmarket over any five-year period. Core investment: At least 80% of the fund is invested in the shares of companies domiciled, or conducting the major part of their economic activity, in the Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) region. The fund may invest in China A- Shares via the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect. Other investment: The fund also holds cash or assets that can be turned quickly into cash. Strategy in brief: The investment manager invests in the shares of companies whose long-term prospects are considered to be undervalued. Stock selection is driven by in-depth analysis of individual companies, with a specific focus on their level of profitability, their corporate governance practices and the valuation of the shares. The investment manager selects stocks with distinct profitability profiles to build a fund that has the potential to cope in a variety of market conditions. Performance comparator: The fund is actively managed. The MSCI All Country Asia Pacific ex Japan Net Return Index is a point of reference against which the performance of the fund may be measured. It is a net return index which includes dividends after the deduction of withholding taxes. Other information This fund allows the investment manager to make discretionary choices when deciding which investments should be held in the fund. You can buy and sell shares in the fund on any business day. Provided we receive your instructions before 13:00 Luxembourg time, shares will be bought at that day’s price. Any income from the fund will be rolled up into the value of your investment. In addition to the charges set out in the charges section, the fund will incur portfolio transaction costs which are paid from the assets of the fund. These may have a material impact on your returns.
