Fund Description

The Matthews Pacific Tiger Fund Investor Class (MAPTX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that bets on Asian equities. MAPTX specifically looks at owning stocks in all the countries and markets in Asia, excluding Japan. This includes developed, emerging, and frontier countries. MAPTX combs the region using various screens that look at measures such as balance sheet health, earnings growth and price-valuation when selecting positions for the fund.

Given its narrow focus on Asia, MAPTX is best suited as a satellite position in a broader portfolio. The fund is managed by Matthews Asia.
