Fund Managers’ Monthly Report

June 2014

  • Asian equities continued to benefit from the assurance of loose monetary policy in June, but gains were pared by still patchy global economic data and escalating violence in Iraq. The Thai market performed well as the nationwide curfew was lifted, while the military rulers began approving stalled investment and infrastructure projects. Indonesia lagged the overall region as polls showed market-friendly presidential nominee Joko Widodo losing ground to his rival Prabowo Subianto ahead of the election.
  • Regarding Fund-related news, Standard Chartered warned that its first-half 2014 income could decline, while operating profits could fall by 20% due to weakness in earnings from financial markets. Nevertheless, we believe the bank remains well positioned to benefit from growth in emerging markets. Separately, it continued to streamline its struggling Korean operations by selling Standard Chartered Savings Bank and Standard Chartered Capital Korea to J Trust.
  • In Malaysia, Public Bank’s 1-for-10 rights issue was approved at its extraordinary general meeting.* Priced at what we view as an attractive discount, it is generally expected to see good demand, allowing the lender to strengthen its capital base.
  • In Singapore, Keppel Corp.’s order book continued to grow as it signed a US$735 million deal to perform the world’s first conversion of a liquefied natural gas carrier into a floating liquefaction vessel. SingTel is increasing its capabilities in digital advertising through the purchase of U.S.-based companies Adconion and Kontera. This is in line with its strategic shift into the digital life segment.
  • In June, we reduced the Fund’s overweight versus the benchmark MSCI All Country Asia ex Japan Index to India by paring Hero MotoCorp, as its share price has risen sharply year-to-date in local currency terms, on the back of the election-driven rally.

* An extraordinary general meeting of a company's shareholders, executives and any other members is usually called on short notice and deals with an urgent matter.

Section 16 Filings


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.
