Since launch in 1995, the portfolio has been managed by Matthew Dobbs, who focuses on individual stock selection, with an awareness of macroeconomic factors. He is supported by a large research team based in Asia. There is a focus on companies with visible earnings growth, sustainable returns and valuation support. Over most time periods, the performance of the fund versus the benchmark has been positive.
