Fund objective
The Baring Asia Balanced Fund is aimed specifically, but not exclusively, at meeting the investment requirements of Hong Kong based retirement schemes and its investment objective and policies have been tailored accordingly, namely, to achieve a long-term annualised real rate of return in excess of 2% per annum above Hong Kong wage inflation, when measured in Hong Kong dollar terms. Accordingly, it is the intention of the Managers that the Fund will normally include a diversified range of international equities and debt securities, generally with a significant exposure to Asian equities. Investment may also be made in cash and money market instruments where considered appropriate in light of market conditions.
