Fund Managers’ Monthly Report

February 2014

  • Easing concerns over the Federal Reserve’s tapering of its asset purchases and emerging markets contagion, coupled with Janet Yellen’s assurance to keep U.S. rates low, lifted Asian equities in February. The recent sell-off, which appeared excessive, also helped revive risk appetite. Within Southeast Asia, further support came from some better-than-expected gross domestic product numbers. However, Chinese shares wobbled on disappointing manufacturing news, with further uncertainty fuelled by the yuan’s tumble.
  • In Fund-related corporate news, Singapore banks DBS, OCBC and UOB all registered robust annual loan growth, although interest margins contracted due to the competitive environment.
  • In comparison, HSBC’s revenues were weaker than expected, particularly in its global banking and markets segment. We think its strategy of cross-selling among its divisions, while taking advantage of its global network, should stand it in good stead in its Asian expansion. Standard Chartered’s full-year profits fell for the first time in over a decade on the back of a write-down in its South Korean business, slowing growth in emerging markets and rising bad loans. Nonetheless, the bank’s capital adequacy ratio remains robust, allaying (for now) worries over its capital position. Long term, we believe its prospects in emerging markets remain bright.
  • There were no major changes to the Fund in February.

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.
