The Asian Focus Portfolio seeks to achieve capital appreciation by investing principally in the equity securities of companies listed or domiciled, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in the Asia Pacific region (excluding Japan). These may include large, medium and smaller companies. The Portfolio has the flexibility to take significant stock and sector positions which may lead to increased levels of volatility.
