Fund Managers’ Monthly Report

August 2014

  • Uneven economic growth and the prospect of higher U.S. interest rates jostled against hopes of additional stimulus in Europe, returning mixed U.S. dollar-based performances across Asian markets in August.
  • In Fund-related corporate news, OCBC plans to raise S$3.37 billion (roughly US$2.7 billion) in a rights issue to fund its acquisition of Hong Kong bank Wing Hang. In Fund-related results, the Singapore lender, along with peers DBS and UOB, reported good loan growth and robust capital adequacy.
  • Standard Chartered’s lower profits were in line with its earlier guidance. The lender remains comfortably capitalized, in our view, and poised to capture long-term growth in emerging markets. Meanwhile, HSBC’s earnings fell as good performance in commercial banking was overshadowed by softer revenues in global banking and retail. However, asset quality improved.
  • China Mobile posted higher data revenues, but profits fell because of increased expenses and subsidies related to the rollout of 4G handsets and base stations. Nevertheless, the telecom made good progress in growing its 4G subscriber base. We believe that PetroChina remains wellpositioned to benefit from ongoing natural gas reforms, the latest being the hike in non-residential city gas prices.
  • In August, we added to the holding in E-Mart, Korea’s largest discount store operator, and ST Engineering in Singapore on share price weakness. We funded these purchases by paring the position in PetroChina on stock price strength.

Section 16 Filings
 

**Disclaimer

Pursuant to valuation policies adopted by the Board of Directors of the Fund, the Fund values foreign equity securities that primarily trade in certain markets that close ahead of the Fund’s daily 4:00 pm Eastern net asset value (“NAV”) calculation time at their fair values using prices provided by third-party independent pricing services. The fair value of each such security generally is calculated by applying a valuation factor provided by the independent pricing service to the last sales price for that security, or, if, the pricing service is unable to provide a fair value for a security, at the price at the close of the exchange on which it is principally traded, subject to adjustment by the Fund’s Pricing Committee. These daily fair valuations seek to reflect information available after the local market close that may affect the value of the foreign equity securities held by the Fund. As a result, this official NAV calculation reflects adjustments that may cause it to vary from a calculation based solely on closing prices. In contrast, the “Unadjusted NAV” of the Fund (shown above) is for informational purposes only and is computed using the closing prices on the relevant exchange. It does not reflect any daily fair valuation adjustments of the Fund’s foreign securities. The Unadjusted NAV does not represent the official NAV of the Fund, nor is the Unadjusted NAV used for Fund accounting or performance purposes. Investors should not rely upon the Unadjusted NAV when making their investment decisions.
