WHY INVEST IN THIS FUND

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 fund 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. The Fund will be supplemented by an allocation to dynamic stocks with the aim to diversify performance drivers and generate strong relative returns across different market conditions. These stocks are typically companies exhibiting “growth at reasonable price” (GARP) characteristics.
