JF Asia Domestic Opportunities October 2009 Fund objective To provide investors with long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in securities of companies whose predominant business will benefit from, or is related to, the domestic growth in Asian economies excluding Japan but including Australia and New Zealand.
• The Fund invests in specialised sectors and themes and is therefore subject to greater concentration risk than a more diversified investment. The Fund's price movement may go down or up sharply over a short time span. • The Fund may invest in emerging markets and thus may have exposure to the relevant currency risk. • Investors may be subject to substantial losses. • Before you decide to invest, make sure the intermediary has explained to you that the fund is suitable to you. Please refer to the offering document(s) for details.
Outlook: The recent IPO failures in China are a good indicator that investors are finding difficulties digesting the new equity supplies coming into the market. The indigestion will take several weeks to work its way before markets resume their positive momentum. We maintain that the policy environment overall will stay pro-growth for the foreseeable horizon, and the low interest rate environment along with economic recovery prospects will be supportive to equities.
JF Asia Domestic Opportunities
Portfolio Review: Markets rallied across the world on further signs that the US economy is on its recovery path. With US consumers gradually gaining confidence, technology stocks across Asia rebounded sharply on expectations that the coming Christmas demand will exceed expectations. On the other hand, investors are still worried about the possible tightening measures by the Chinese government. Most domestic plays in Asia particularly those in China - underperformed as a result. Meanwhile, several failed IPOs also have affected investor sentiment.
