The China region has experienced many changes since the fund opened in 1994 but we believe the region continues to hold further investment opportunities. Many countries in the region possess characteristics similar to the United States prior to the industrial revolution: a thriving, young workforce, migration from rural to urban areas and shifting sentiment toward consumption.

The fund invests in both new and existing enterprises registered and operating in China and the China region. At least 80 percent of the fund’s assets are invested in equity securities, including common stock, preferred stock, convertible securities, rights and warrants and depository receipts of companies located in the China region. The fund will invest in securities in the authorized China securities market; in particular, the Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and Shanghai stock exchanges. The fund will also invest in securities traded on the Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia stock exchanges.

The fund considers investments in the China region to be the following:

  • Securities of issuers organized under the laws of the countries within the China region;
  • Securities of issuers that have at least 50 percent of their assets in one or more China region countries;
  • Securities of issuers that derive at least 50 percent of their gross revenues or profits from providing goods or services to or from one or more China region countries; or
