The Fund follows an equity long/short investment strategy. The objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth in absolute terms with a strong focus on capital preservation. Traditional long positions are coupled with (synthetic) long and short positions, which will be achieved through the use of financial derivative instruments (such as total return swaps). The Fund will take exposure principally to companies, which are domiciled, headquartered or exercise the predominant part of their economic activity in Asia, with a focus mainly in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. For this purpose, the Fund will mainly invest in equities, equity related securities (such as but not limited to ordinary or preferred shares) and financial derivative instruments. Except the above-mentioned geographical criteria, the choice of investments will neither be limited by an economic sector nor in terms of currencies in which investments will be denominated. However, depending on financial market conditions, a particular focus can be placed in a single Asian country and/or in a single currency and/or in a single economic sector.
