The objective is to produce capital growth over the long term by investing primarily in the shares of companies that are either domiciled, incorporated or conduct a significant portion of their operations in one or more of mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan. The ACD will determine what constitutes conducting a significant portion of a company’s operations in a country and in doing so the ACD will consider various factors including whether the majority of the company’s revenues or profits are derived from or the majority of its assets are in that country. The Sub-fund may also invest in shares of companies that are listed in mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan. From time to time the portfolio may be concentrated and contain around only forty stocks.Up to (but no more than) 10% in value of the Sub-fund may be invested in each of the following: collective investment schemes and deposits.
