Objective

The Fund may invest primarily in equity securities of Japanese companies. The Fund seeks to identify and invest in significantly undervalued stocks by estimating fair value of a stock based on mid to long term earnings outlook and qualitative factors (sustainability of above average earnings growth, quality of earnings, management capability and degree of shareholder focus). It will keep holding the position for a long time until the market reflects the value of a stock.
