The Investment

Units in a unit trust - the Cooper Investors Asian Equities Fund (the "Fund")

Minimum Initial Investment



Qiao Ma


National Australia Bank Limited.


MSCI All Countries Asia excluding Japan in Australian Dollars net dividends.


Income distributions will normally be paid half-yearly as at 31 December and 30 June (although the Manager has the discretion to distribute more frequently) and will automatically be invested in further units unless a unit holder elects otherwise.

Investment Risks and Return Objectives

The Fund aims to generate long term returns by investing in a range of listed Asian securities, incorporating small cap, mid cap and large cap stocks. In addition, the Fund has flexibility to invest in securities listed outside of Asia where those securities have a meaningful proportion of their sales, assets or profits from the Asian region. The Fund will own a selection of securities diversified by country, industry and size of capitalisation.

Our aim is for the Fund's long term returns to exceed the Benchmark. However, the Fund will be constructed with limited reference to the Benchmark and therefore returns may significantly vary from the Benchmark returns.

Investment Strategy

The Fund aims to invest in quality companies with a strong value proposition. We try to understand "downside risk" as well as "upside potential" in assessing the investment merit of stocks. The Manager uses CI's VoF investment process, incorporating strong fundamentally driven research in its search for suitable investments. A minimum of 70% of the Fund's exposure to foreign currency is unhedged.
