A Focused Approach in Asia

Kenneth Lowe, CFA, Portfolio Manager

March 23, 2015
Kenneth Lowe, CFA, Lead Manager of the Matthews Asia Focus Fund, explains the philosophy of the Fund, and how he attempts to give investors exposure to some of the highest quality companies in one of the highest growth regions globally.

FInvestments in Asian securities may involve risks such as social and political instability, market illiquidity, exchange-rate fluctuations, a high level of volatility and limited regulation. Investing in emerging and frontier markets involves different and greater risks, as these countries are substantially smaller, less liquid and more volatile than securities markets in more developed markets. 

Focused funds may invest a larger portion of their assets in the securities of a single issuer compared to a more diversified fund.  Focusing investments in a small number of companies may subject the Fund to greater share price volatility and therefore a greater risk of loss because a single security’s increase or decrease in value may have a greater impact on the Fund’s value and total return. These and other risks associated with investing in the Fund can be found in the prospectus.

EPS (Earnings per Share) is the amount of annual profit (after tax and all other expenses) attributable to each share in a company. EPS is calculated by dividing profit by the average number of shares on issue.
