INVESTMENT SOLUTIONS


LIBRA CONSUMER AND LEISURE ASIA FUND

 

 

Open-ended regional unit trust fund, which seeks to offer investors a wider investment universe of quality growth stocks by investing primarily in those that offer exposure to the consumer and leisure sector in Asia. The Fund will be a proxy to the growth prospects of this burgeoning sector which is expected to be a major beneficiary of rising disposable income in the region. In turn, investors will earn potentially attractive returns.

 

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES

To provide capital appreciation over the medium to long-term by investing in a diversified portfolio comprising stocks of companies in Asia which are considered to have strong growth prospects and are able to benefit from the rising wealth effect of the region’s middle class population.

 

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

 

The Fund will have two concurrent strategies. On a macro level, the Fund will look for upcoming trends or emerging areas of growth in the Asian consumer and leisure sectors. These could arise, for example, from new developments in other global markets or from new direct investments. On a micro level, the Fund will seek undervalued consumer and leisure related companies that have yet to be re-rated to their intrinsic values. These companies should have a strong business franchise, be professionally managed and have proven business strategies.
