The Matthews Asia Strategic Income Fund changed its name to the Matthews Asia Total Return Bond Fund on January 31, 2020.

For the Matthews Asia Total Return Bond Fund, the Index performance reflects the returns of the discontinued predecessor HSBC Asian Local Bond Index up to December 31, 2012 and the returns of the successor Markit iBoxx Asian Local Bond Index thereafter. Effective January 31, 2020, the Fund changed its benchmark to a blended benchmark comprised of 50% Markit iBoxx Asian Local Bond Index (ALBI) and 50% J.P. Morgan Asia Credit Index (JACI). Prior to January 31, 2020, the Fund's benchmark was the Markit iBoxx Asian Local Bond Index. Matthews believes that the blended benchmark is more appropriate in light of the Fund's current investment strategy.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. High ratings and rankings does not assure favorable performance.

The Overall Morningstar®️ Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted-average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and (if applicable) ten-year ratings.

Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The Morningstar Rating does not include any adjustment for sales loads. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.

The Matthews Korea Fund and Matthews Emerging Asia Fund are not currently rated by Morningstar. The Emerging Markets Equity Fund will not be rated by Morningstar until the Fund has a three-year track record.
