Investment Objectives

This fund’s objective is to provide income and capital appreciation by investing in a diversified portfolio comprised of U.S. dollar-denominated convertible securities and higher yielding equity securities of Asian companies. The fund’s primary emphasis is Asian countries excluding Japan.

Investment Strategy

These are the strategies the portfolio manager uses to try to achieve the fund’s objective: invests primarily in equities and convertible bonds through a bottom-up selection process based on GARP (Growth at a Reasonable Price) methodology; uses quantitative and qualitative analyses to identify dominant, well-managed businesses in growth industries, selling at discounts to their enterprise value and growth potential.
