Matthews Asia Dividend Fund

Matthews Asia Funds

Risk Considerations

  • Investment involves risk. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. It is possible to lose the principal capital of your investment.
  • The Fund invests primarily in Asia Pacific countries and economies. Investment in such emerging markets may be subject to increased risks such as political, tax, economic, policy, market, liquidity, trading, custody, settlement, currency, legal and regulatory risks.
  • The Fund may, at its discretion, pay dividends out of the capital or effectively out of capital in respect of the distribution shares. Payment of dividends out of capital and/or effectively out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor's original investment, or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any distribution may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per share of the Fund.
  • The Fund invests primarily in equity securities, which may result in increased volatility.
  • The Fund may invest in smaller companies which are likely to carry higher risks than larger companies.
  • The Fund may invest in financial derivative instruments (“FDIs”). Risk associated with FDIs include counterparty/credit risk, liquidity risk, valuation risk, volatility risk and over-the-counter transaction risk. Exposure to FDIs may lead to a high risk of significant loss by the Fund.
  • The Fund may use hedging techniques to attempt to offset certain market risks but there is no guarantee that hedging techniques will fully and effectively achieve their desired result. 
  • Investors should not invest in the Fund solely based on the information in this website. Please read the Hong Kong Offering Document carefully for further details including risk factors before investing.
For Accumulation Share Classes, no distributions will be made and all interest and other income earned by the Fund will be reflected in the Net Asset Value of the Shares.



Risk Considerations

The value of an investment in the Fund can go down as well as up and possible loss of principal is a risk of investing. Investments in international and emerging market securities may involve risks such as social and political instability, market illiquidity, exchange-rate fluctuations, a high level of volatility and limited regulation. The Fund invests in holdings denominated in foreign currencies, and is exposed to the risk that the value of the foreign currency will increase or decrease. The Fund invests primarily in equity securities, which may result in increased volatility. There is no guarantee that the Fund or the companies in its portfolio will pay or continue to pay dividends. These and other risks associated with investing in the Fund can be found in the Prospectus.
