  • Management Contract & Fees:

    Management agreement with First State Investments terminable on one years notice. Management fee includes a base fee and a performance fee. The base fee should be 0.75% per annum of its net assets payable quarterly in arrears. In addition an annual performance fee may be payable to the Investment Manager. These fees are capped, in aggregate, at an amount not exceeding or equal to 5% of the lower of 1) the gross asset value of the Company and 2) its market capitalisation, in each case at the relevant 31-Aug year end. The performance fee is based on the Company's Share Price Total Return (SPTR), taking the change in share price and dividend together, over a three year period. If the Company's SPTR exceeds the SPTR of the Company's benchmark index (the MSCI AC Asia ex Japan Index) over the three years' period plus 10% points then a performance fee is payable to the Investment Manager. The objective of the performance fee is to give the Investment Manager 10% of the additional value generated for shareholders by such outperformance.
