Investment Strategy

The fund aims to achieve the investment objective by constructing a portfolio of securities, which provides exposure to the Asia (ex-japan) region.

The fund is managed by Value Partners using disciplined value-oriented approach supported by intensive, on-the-ground bottom-up fundamental research resulting in a portfolio of individual holdings, which are, in the view of Value Partners, undervalued and of high quality, on either an absolute or relative basis, and which have the potential for capital appreciation.

The Fund will primarily have exposure to the equity securities of entities listed on securities exchanges across the Asia (ex-Japan) region. The Fund may also gain exposure to:

  • Entities listed on securities exchanges outside the Asia (ex-Japan) region, which have significant assets; investments, production activities, trading or other business interests in the Asia (ex-Japan) region, or which derive a significant portion of their revenue from the Asia (ex-Japan) region and
  • Unlisted instruments with equity-like characteristics, such as participation notes and convertible bonds.

The Fund may also invest in cash and money market instruments, depositary receipts, listed unit trusts, shares in mutual fund corporations and other collective investment schemes (including real estate investment trusts), derivatives including both exchange-traded and over-the-counter (“OTC”), convertible securities, participatory notes, bonds, and foreign exchange contracts.
