    protect against potential market downturns.

    This solution is managed by Abax Investments, a diversified asset manager with a team of highly qualified and experienced investment managers, dedicated exclusively to active fund management.

    Investment strategyTo determine asset allocation, Abax

    Investments applies a top-down strategic asset allocation together with a bottom-up

    view of individual securities. These strategies combined with fundamental macro-economic

    analysis ensures Abax Investments derives an optimal asset allocation, aligned with their

    investment strategy.

    The investment team believes that earnings and dividend growth are the primary drivers of share price appreciation. Through bottom

    up fundamental research, the team is able to identify companies that are undervalued

    relative to their realistic growth prospective. Similarly, they can identify companies where

    current valuations overvalue their future earnings and dividend growth potential. This leads to effective equity selection decisions.
