Matthews China Small Companies Fund


Risk Considerations

  • Investment involves risk. It is possible to lose the principal capital of your investment.
  • The Fund invests primarily in Mainland China-related companies. Investments in such companies may be subject to increased risks such as political, tax, economic, market, liquidity, custody and settlement, currency, legal and regulatory risks.
  • 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 does not hedge to attempt to offset certain market risks. This may expose the Fund to the risk of full losses resulting from a decline in a security's value.
  • Investors should not invest in the Fund solely based on the information in this material alone. Please contact Matthews Global Investors (Hong Kong) Limited for further details of the risk factors.
