Fund strategy

The Fund investment objective is to earn a reasonable dividend yield each year and to exceed the Morgan Stanley Capital International Asia Ex Japan Index over the medium to long term. Under normal conditions, the Sub-Fund principally invests in shares of small Asian companies. The primary focus of the Sub-Fund will be on publicly quoted equities of companies which have market capitalisations of less than 2.5 billion USD. The Sub-Fund may use derivatives to reduce its exposure to various investment risks (hedging) and for efficient portfolio management, but not to directly seek investment gains. The investment manager uses economic data, onsite visits and management calls to determine the level of investment in companies that appear to have the potential for growth.

Fund Manager

James Morton

The Fund Manager will seek to create a balanced portfolio thus reducing risk while at the same time targeting a reasonable yield.

·         Geographic Spread: The Investment Manager believes that the current concentration of high yields among equities with attractive balance sheets and growth potential makes South East Asia the region of greatest appeal for this particular mandate. The UK also offers a significant concentration of companies that pay good yields, many of which should be sustainable. The other area of concentration is likely to be what can be loosely grouped under the heading of “Old  Commonwealth” and in particular Canada. There is also likely to be representation from Continental European markets. Holland has a number of listed companies with yields that meet the Fund's criteria. Scandinavia, Switzerland and France also contain a few high yield securities, as do some of the developing economies in Eastern Europe.

·         Sector Spread: Traditional high yield areas such as financial services and property. It is the intention of the Investment Manager that the Fund will include investments from those sectors but will also target industries where the Investment Manager believes companies have higher earnings growth potential, with the aim of avoiding over emphasis on income at the expense of capital appreciation. The Investment Manager believes it is possible to find shares yielding over 5% in the following sectors: building materials, chemicals, consumer products, engineering, food, logistics, media, publishing, packaging and pharmaceuticals.

·         Size Spread: It is the intention of the Investment Manager that the portfolio will include companies ranging from large cap companies (in excess of $2.5 billion) to micro cap (below $50 million).

In choosing investments, especially equities, the Investment Manager will pay particular attention to:

o   The historical dividend record including growth over the past five years.

o   The earnings and cash flow capability of the company and its prospects for future dividend growth.

o   The balance sheet leverage to ensure that the company has the ability to finance its continuing operations while maintaining or growing its dividend.

o   Externalities which could affect the ability of the company to pay dividends, both market and regulatory.

The assets of the Fund are subject to market fluctuations and the risks inherent in any investment in equities.

Other than the usual risks inherent in holding equities, the Fund is vulnerable to the liquidity problems associated with small-cap stocks.

Investment in Asian countries offers new growth opportunities. However, these markets are also likely to be affected by risks relating to the social and political changes which these countries are undergoing. Certain economic or financial factors such as inflation rate, regulation and restrictions on foreign exchange, limited liquidity of the markets, higher volatility in prices, rates and currencies, delayed settlements and transactions costs, counterparty risks linked to payments made prior to delivery of securities, differences in auditing and information on the issuers of securities, entail a degree of risk greater than the degree of risk associated with investment in more sophisticated markets.

No guarantee can be given that the Fund’s objective will be achieved and that investors will recover the amount of their initial investment.

Main risk factors defining the risk level

The risk/reward rating of the Fund reflects the following factor: it is invested in shares which carry higher risks than bonds or money market instruments.

Other risks to be considered

Moreover, it can be exposed to unusual market conditions which could trigger other risks: operational risk (the Fund could lose some or all of its investments through fraud, corruption, political or military actions, the seizure of assets, or other irregular events), counterparty risk (the Fund could lose money if an entity with which it does business becomes unwilling or unable to honor its commitments), default risk (the issuers of certain bonds could become unable to make payments on their bonds), derivatives risk (certain derivatives could increase the volatility or expose the Fund to losses greater than the cost of the derivative), liquidity risk (certain securities could become hard to value, or to sell at a desired time and price) and management risk (portfolio management techniques that have worked well in normal market conditions could prove ineffective or detrimental during unusual conditions).
