Parvest Equity Best Selection Asia ex-Japan

  • The fund invests at least 75% of its assets in equities and/or equity equivalent securities issued by a limited number of companies that have their registered offices or conduct the majority of their business activities in Asia (excluding Japan) and that are characterised by the quality of their financial structure and/or their potential for earnings growth.
  • The fund may invest in derivatives (up to 100%). These types of investments can involve material additional risks, for example counterparty default risk or insolvency, volatility risk, liquidity risk, leverage risk and valuation risk, and may expose the fund to significant losses.
  • The fund has significant exposure to a geographical region (Asia ex Japan), emerging markets and a limited number of securities and is likely to be subject to a greater concentration risk and higher volatility than a more diversified investment. Emerging markets may have higher legal, regulatory and political risk.
  • The management company may at its discretion pay dividends out of the capital of the fund. Payment of dividends out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any distributions involving payment of dividends out of the fund’s capital may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per share.
  • Investors should not solely rely on this document to make any investment decision. Please refer to the Singapore offering documents for further information (including the risk factors) about the fund.
  • Led by Lead Portfolio Manager, Arthur Kwong, the Asia Pacific Equities team comprises 7 investment professionals, entrusted with around USD 2.3 billion in Asia-Pacific assets, as of end-March 2018.
  • The fund captures growth opportunities and provides consistent risk-adjusted return, using a fundamental, long-term investment approach across the Asia ex-Japan region.
  • Focus on companies backed by positive demand-supply drivers, and led by sound management with a strong track record in corporate governance and capital management.
  • With majority of the team based in Hong Kong, the team is well-positioned to collect on-the-ground insights and gain access to both company management and sites across all Asian markets.
