Fund Objectives

This funds objective is to provide income and capital appreciation by investing in a diversified portfolio comprised of U.S. dollar-denominated convertible securities and higher yielding equity securities of Asian companies. The funds primary emphasis is the Asian Tiger countries (Asia excluding Japan). Due to its convertible bond component, the portfolio allows conservative investors to participate in the upside potential of Asian equities, with less volatility than a pure equity fund and also offers some protection against unfavourable currency fluctuations.
