The Fund may be suitable for investors who:
  • have a medium to long-term investment horizon; 
  • are high risk tolerant; 
  • are seeking higher returns for their investments compared to the performance benchmark.
The Fund will invest primarily in equity securities. The fundamental investment process will be geared towards identifying and investing in growth companies in Asia (ex Japan) with a market capitalization of not more than USD 1.5 billion at the time of investment. However, the Fund would also have an option to invest into companies with a market capitalization of not more than USD 3.0 billion at the time of investment which will be capped at no more than 30% of the NAV of the Fund.

While the Fund’s core investments will remain in equities, the Fund holds the option to invest into fixed income instruments such as debentures, money market instruments and deposits. The selection of fixed income instrument will not be constrained by credit ratings of ssuances. However, the selection will depend largely on its credit quality where the respective issuers display strong ability to meet their financial obligation, healthy cash-flow, the collateral type, value, claims priority as well as offer highest safety for timely payment of interest and principal.

We typically take an active trading policy where we look to maintain some core holdings that are held over the medium to long-term which is similar to a buy and hold strategy. We will also maintain a trading portion for the portfolio, which we use to take advantage by participating in investment opportunities that are set to benefit from prevailing market conditions, with the aim of boosting the Fund’s performance.

To achieve its objective, the Fund will also have the flexibility to hold exposure in warrants as well as collective investment schemes that have similar investment objective to the Fund.
Foreign Investments
The Fund remains focused on companies that have a business focus within the Asian (ex Japan) region. As such, investments will be made predominantly into Asian (ex Japan) markets, with a flexibility to invest not more than 30% of the Fund’s NAV into companies with a business focus within the region but are listed outside of the Asia (ex Japan) region. Notwithstanding, investments will only be made into countries excluding Japan that are the ordinary or associate member of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO). 
Derivatives
Derivative trades may be carried out for hedging purposes through financial instruments including, but not limited to, forward contracts, futures contracts and swaps. Future and forward contracts are generally contracts between two parties to trade an asset at an agreed price on a pre-determined future date. Swaps, whereas, is an agreement to swap or exchange two financial instruments between two parties. The intention of hedging is to protect the value of the asset from any adverse price movements. For example, to hedge against foreign currency exchange risk, the Fund may enter into a currency forward contract to offset any adverse foreign currency movements by determining an agreed rate for an agreed tenure with the counterparty. While these hedging transactions would protect the Fund against potential losses, trades for hedging purposes would also limit the returns that the Fund may have potentially received from foreign exchange gains would the Fund not have hedged its foreign currency exposure. 
Temporary Defensive Position
We hold the option to take temporary defensive positions that may be inconsistent with the Fund’s principal strategy and asset allocation to protect the Fund against adverse market conditions that may impact financial markets. To manage the risk of the Fund, we may shift the Fund’s focus and exposure into lower risk investments such as deposits or money market instruments.
