LGlobal Funds - Asia High Dividend Equity

The Fund aims to provide long term capital growth by investing primarily in equities or equity-linked securities (including, but not

limited to, preference shares, real estate investment trusts, depository receipts) of companies in the Asia Pacific (ex Japan) region

that offer attractive dividend yields and sustainable dividend payments.

The Fund may employ financial derivative instruments for hedging and efficient portfolio management purposes. Financial derivative

instruments can be used for instance to create market exposures through equity, currency, volatility or index related financial

derivative instruments and include over-the-counter and/or exchange traded options, futures, forward contracts and/or a combination

of the above.

Fund Manager’s Commentary

• Asian equity markets in February recovered strongly after January’s decline. Trading volumes

however remained low and we continued to see fund outflows in the region. The rally was mainly led

by Indonesia and the Philippines as investors’ concerns regarding deteriorating fundamentals on the

back of the Fed tapering eased somewhat.

• All countries performed positively with the Philippines (+8.1%) leading the outperformance followed

by Indonesia (+4.8%) and Hong Kong (+4.7%) while the weakest market, Taiwan, registered a gain

of 1.7%. All sectors performed extremely well with healthcare emerging as the top performer with

6.1% return followed by information technology (5.5%) and utilities (4.9%). The only

underperformance came from the materials sector which was flat at -0.5%.

• In February, the Fund returned 3.2% 1 while the benchmark returned 3.6% in SGD terms. In terms of

country allocation, the fund's overweight in Australia, Philippines, and underweight China

contributed positively while the overweight in Singapore, Taiwan and underweight in Indonesia

contributed negatively. In terms of sector allocation, the underweight in financials and overweight in

consumer staples and discretionary contributed positively while the overweight in telecoms and

underweight in information technology contributed negatively. Stock selection was positive in

Taiwan, Australia offset by negative stock selection effect in Singapore and Hong Kong.

• The lack of investor conviction is likely to persist into March and recent events surrounding Ukraine

are likely to heighten uncertainties. China’s National People’s Congress will be closely watched for

evidence that the government remains committed to reforms and also signs of economic

rebalancing taking place. We continue to be defensively positioned and to focus on those

companies where we have a strong comfort level concerning earnings sustainability and cash flow
