Investment Strategy

The Fund aims to achieve the investment objective, primarily by investing in companies across a range of market capitalisations listed in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Macau and Taiwan (Greater China) and companies listed on other exchanges, which have significant assets, investments, production activities, trading or other business interests in the greater china region, or which derive a significant portion or their revenue from the greater china region.

The Fund is managed by Value Partners using a 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.

In addition to direct investment in companies listed in Greater China, the Fund may also invest in cash and short-term money market instruments, convertible securities issued by listed companies, listed unit trusts, shares in mutual fund corporation and other collective investment schemes (including real estate investment trusts). Derivatives including both exchange-traded and over-the-counter, and participatory notes.
