Objective

The Asia folio was developed for investors seeking higher capital appreciation potential and diversification through Asian markets.

Strategy

The Asia folio consists of established companies with primary business operations in the Asian region.

Because these economies, and those of other countries in the region, are generally in an earlier stage of development than more developed economies, they may provide greater long-term growth potential than developed markets.
