Matthews Japan Fund Investing Philosophy

Matthews employs a bottom-up, fundamental investment philosophy with a focus on long-term investment performance.
(1) Active management
We believe many of the region’s widely used indices are backward looking and are not representative of the industries and companies that will be successful in the future. We look to invest in companies whose potential has yet to be fully recognized by the market.
 (2) Long-term focus on Asia
We believe a long-term approach is the most effective way to capitalize on Asia’s evolution. Matthews has been investing in Asia since 1991 and we draw on our experience to identify companies that stand to benefit from the growth and development of markets throughout the region.
 (3) Bottom-up research
We employ a fundamental, bottom-up investment process that seeks to identify companies with sustainable long-term growth prospects, strong business models, quality management teams and reasonable valuations. This research process involves more than 2,000 company meetings each year.
 (4) Defining Asia investment strategies
We strive to provide investors a range of Asia strategies across the risk-reward spectrum and launch new strategies when there are compelling investment opportunities in the region.
