The objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth in the value of assets by investing in companies in Asia which the Managers believe will benefit from the economic growth and development of the region.
The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 70% of its total assets at any one time in equities and equity-related securities of companies incorporated in countries which are members of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN), or which have a significant proportion of their assets or other interests in those countries. The members of ASEAN include Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam.
Who Should Invest
The Fund is designed for investors seeking a strategy that targets long-term capital growth by investing primarily in ASEAN equities, with the flexibility to also invest in Asia frontiers equities.
The value of investments can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Emerging markets or less developed countries may face more political, economic or structural challenges than developed countries. Changes in exchange rates between the currency of the Fund and the currencies in which the assets of the Fund are valued may also affect the value of the Fund. The Fund may also use derivatives for investment purposes. These are complex instruments that carry the risk of causing increased volatility in the value of the Fund.
