This is a long-only fund and uses a flexible and unconstrained approach based on bottom-up stock selection and company fundamentals. With a track record of more than 10 years, the fund aims to invest across the market cap spectrum, focusing on companies greater than $100m market cap.
The fund’s nominal benchmark is the MSCI All-Country Asia Pacific ex-Japan Index, but it is not constrained to follow this or any other index. Typical of the fund’s unconstrained approach is that its active share, a measure of the percentage of holdings that differ from the benchmark index, is typically greater than 80%. The typical number of positions within the portfolio is around 60 to 80.
