Fund Managers’ Monthly Report

May 2014

  • Asian stock markets were buoyant in May as most major central banks kept monetary policy loose. Later, regional politics took center stage. The India market rose to new highs as the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party cruised to an election victory, giving it a strong mandate. Conversely, the Thailand market lagged its peers as the military launched a coup to resolve the political stalemate.
  • In Fund-related news, China signed a US$400 billion, 30-year gas deal with Russia. The agreement will secure for Fund holding PetroChina supply that should reduce its reliance on more expensive liquefied natural gas imports, and potentially improve profitability and strengthen its downstream business. China Mobile relaunched its 4G service plans at prices in line with rivals in a bid to help boost demand. This follows Beijing’s move to promote competition by allowing the state-owned telecom companies to set their own prices. We think a price war is unlikely given the oligopolistic nature of the domestic telecom sector and the importance of profits to these companies.
  • Regarding corporate results, HSBC’s quarterly earnings were weaker compared to the same period a year earlier, but costs were well controlled and impairment provisions eased. SingTel’s profits rose on steady growth in the local consumer business and overseas associates, but currency weakness from overseas operations pared gains. City Developments posted decent results, in spite of the soft property market in Singapore.
  • In May, we reduced the Fund’s exposure to India following the local market’s solid performance in the run-up to the elections.

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.
