1. Objective

    The Pacific Fund aims to produce attractive capital growth over the long term. To invest in any economic sector of countries in the Far East, Australasia and the Indian sub-continent, either directly or indirectly. The Fund may or may not be invested in all these areas at all times. Investment will be mainly in shares of companies. The Fund’s share price can be volatile due to movements in the prices of the underlying holdings and the basis on which the Fund is priced.

    The value of investments and any income from them may go down as well as up and you or your client may not get back the amount originally invested.
  2. How do you find the most exciting growth companies? Look for three components, say investment managers Ewan Markson-Brown and Roderick Snell, who are upbeat about the prospects for those companies in the Asia Pacific region that are displaying them.
