The investment objective of the Asia ex Japan Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth by creating a professionally managed portfolio consisting of what, in the opinion of the Investment Manager, are high quality long-term growth companies based or operating in Asia excluding Japan but including the Indian sub-continent. The Fund will invest at least two thirds of its assets in shares or equity linked securities including preferred stock, convertible bonds and debentures which are convertible into equity securities issued by companies having their headquarters or carrying out their predominant activities in Asia excluding Japan which are listed or traded on Asian or world stock-markets all of which will be Regulated Markets.
