Investment professionals with global access
Managed by professionals
The Fund is managed by NAM Asia’s investment professionals who have access to investment techniques that may not be available to all investors.
More investment opportunities
NAM Asia gives you access to investment opportunities and markets that may not be accessible to individual investors. With its experienced, passionate investment team and a strong investment process, NAM Asia aims to identify and take advantage of market inefficiencies to generate positive total returns for investors in the Fund.
Lower cost investing, generating returns
The fund manager can usually invest at a lower cost than individual investors. From its investments, the Fund is expected to generate (but does not guarantee it will generate) dividends, interest, foreign tax credits and capital gains (as well as capital losses) for investors.
Strong risk management
NAM Asia aims to reduce this risk by diversifying the Fund’s portfolio in accordance with the Fund’s investment guidelines. NAM Asia aims to select intrinsic value investments that offer the best compromise between risk and expected return.
