Best Ideas Portfolio
We look to create a high-conviction Asia Pacific ex Japan portfolio without significant constraints at sector or country levels. We seek to achieve a truly active portfolio strategy with a focus on stock picking as the main driver of relative returns, characterized by a low portfolio turnover and a disciplined approach, supported by fundamental in-house research.

Balance between Core and Dynamic Stocks
The Fund seeks to consist of a core of quality stocks, with emphasis on companies with consistently high return on equity, strong franchise position and sustainability of returns, low levels of debt and a proven record of management and governance.
