Investment Objectives

The Fund’s objective is to provide long-term capital growth. It invests primarily in stocks and bonds of companies based in China, or in companies that will benefit from economic development and growth in the PRC.

Investment Strategy

The portfolio manager uses primarily a bottom-up stock selection process favouring companies that are reasonably priced relative to their growth potential. Company visits as well as interviews with competitors, suppliers and customers form a key part of the research process. Quantitative models are used to screen and generate investment ideas. When selecting stocks, the portfolio manager looks for several key criteria: proven management, strong ability to execute and scalable business models.
