Why This Fund?

Access to China’s large domestically-driven economy
China is the most populous country and the second largest economy in the world. The rising domestic focus of China’s economy bodes well for a broad-based multiplier effect that is supportive of China’s growing economic dominance. The results of China’s policy actions to drive domestic consumption have been impressive, with the contribution of consumption to GDP growth moving up to 78.5% in 2017 from 64.1% in 2015.¹

Exposure to China’s transformative growth story
China has embarked on a series of transformative reforms - moving up the value chain as the “factory of the world” while gaining ground on the innovation space. This structural move is symbolized by shifts from low-cost manufacturing to high-end consumption to technological innovation, as underscored by the success of China’s world-class technology companies, which continue to innovate.

Solid Performance Track Record
The Fund feeds into the Manulife Global Fund Dragon Growth Fund, whose underlying strategy has garnered multiple recognition and awards². With China’s rapidly changing economic structure, its equity markets will inevitably continue to liberalize and evolve. Thus, investors will need to draw on the talents of an experienced and nimble team that can seize these emerging opportunities. This makes the Fund the right choice to navigate China’s new investment landscape.
