THE COMPANY:

Matthews Asia is an independent, privately owned investment manager headquartered in San Francisco with offices in London, Hong Kong and Shanghai. Founded in 1991, the firm specializes in investing in Asia's equity and fixed income markets for institutions, advisors and retail investors worldwide. A focus on Asia-and providing compelling investment solutions for our clients-is what we believe distinguishes us among investment managers.

Our insights into investment opportunities and risks are backed by proprietary research, a collaborative culture, and over 30 years of experience. Our bottom-up, active investment approach has focused on identifying the most attractive long-term growth opportunities in Asia's diverse markets. As the region's influence and links to the broader global economy have grown, our research capabilities have also expanded to include emerging markets-an asset class that Asia now dominates. Our portfolios typically feature low turnover rates and high active share, with holdings that differ significantly from their benchmarks. Our long-term perspective and culture of independent thinking facilitate our delivery of a consistent and distinctive value proposition to our clients and partners.
