Fund OverviewThe Fund aims to generate positive returns over a three to five year period, prior to exchange rate effects, by constructing a portfolio of securities which provides exposure to the Asia (ex-Japan) 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.

The Fund will primarily have exposure to the equity securities of entities listed on securities exchanges across the Asia (ex-Japan) region, however, the Fund may also gain exposure to entities listed on securities outside the Asia (ex-Japan) region which have significant assets, investments, production activities, trading or other business interests in the Asia (ex-Japan) region as well as unlisted instruments with equity-like characteristics, such as participatory 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 OTC, convertible securities, participatory notes, bonds, and foreign exchange contracts.

Over the past 12 months, the fund has risen by +28.41% compared with the index which has returned +17.38%, and since inception in December 2009 has returned +12.66% per annum, a difference of +6.28% relative to the index which has returned +6.38% on an annualised basis over the same period.

The fund's Sharpe ratio has ranged from a high of 2.36 for performance over the most recent 12 months to a low of 1.04 over the latest 48 months, and is 0.82 for performance since inception. By contrast, the MSCI All Country Asia Pacific ex-Japan Index's Sharpe for performance since December 2009 is 0.43.

Since inception in December 2009 in the months where the market was positive, the fund has provided positive returns 89% of the time, contributing to an up-capture ratio for returns since inception of 160.89%.
