Fund Managers’ Monthly Report

May 2014

  • The MSCI Golden Dragon Index rose in May on news that selected banks will be allowed to lower their reserve requirement ratio which should boost liquidity and support growth, while strong flash PMI* data also improved sentiment. Amid the slowing housing market, the central bank also urged larger lenders to accelerate property loans to genuine homebuyers, thus ensuring reasonably priced mortgages. Finally, Beijing announced it would relax foreign investment limits, while regulators also issued new rules to curb off-balance-sheet loans by banks.
  • China signed a US$400 billion, 30-year gas deal with Russia. The agreement will secure for Fund holding PetroChina’s state-owned parent, CNPC, supply that should reduce its reliance on more expensive liquefied natural gas imports, and potentially improve profitability and strengthen its downstream business.
  • While diversified financial services company HSBC posted weaker first-quarter earnings, they were in line with market expectations. Although fee income fell as it streamlined some operations, costs were well controlled and loan loss provisions were substantially lower as the overall business improved.
  • China Mobile relaunched its 4G service plans at deep discounts to bring prices in line with rivals, which may help boost demand.
  • There were no major changes to the Fund in May.

* The flash PMI is an estimate of the Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) of manufacturing for a country, based on about 85% of total PMI survey responses each month. It is intended to provide an accurate advance indication of the final PMI data.

**Disclaimer

Pursuant to valuation policies adopted by the Board of Directors of the Fund, the Fund values foreign equity securities that primarily trade in certain markets that close ahead of the Fund’s daily 4:00 pm Eastern net asset value (“NAV”) calculation time at their fair values using prices provided by third-party independent pricing services. The fair value of each such security generally is calculated by applying a valuation factor provided by the independent pricing service to the last sales price for that security, or, if, the pricing service is unable to provide a fair value for a security, at the price at the close of the exchange on which it is principally traded, subject to adjustment by the Fund’s Pricing Committee. These daily fair valuations seek to reflect information available after the local market close that may affect the value of the foreign equity securities held by the Fund. As a result, this official NAV calculation reflects adjustments that may cause it to vary from a calculation based solely on closing prices. In contrast, the “Unadjusted NAV” of the Fund (shown above) is for informational purposes only and is computed using the closing prices on the relevant exchange. It does not reflect any daily fair valuation adjustments of the Fund’s foreign securities. The Unadjusted NAV does not represent the official NAV of the Fund, nor is the Unadjusted NAV used for Fund accounting or performance purposes. Investors should not rely upon the Unadjusted NAV when making their investment decisions.
