About IASMX: Fully one-third of the world lives in Asia, and close to a billion Asians have risen from poverty to middle class status, making them a consumer market as well as a manufacturing hub for the developed world. Rapid industrialization and economic reform have helped China become the world’s second largest economy, surpassing Japan now in third place and India in fourth place. We think that Asia’s remarkable economic growth has been and will continue to be an engine for the global economy over the next 50 years. Our Asia Focus Fund lets you participate in this unprecedented growth by investing in dynamic companies located in China, Hong Kong, India, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and more.

Executives

Edmund Harriss, Investment Director & Fund Manager
Having managed the Asia Funds for over 14 years both from London and from Hong Kong, Edmund Harriss is dedicated to understanding the agents of change. It’s about making ourselves ready for the new world that is unfolding in front of our eyes. For Edmund there is nothing quite like studying companies and making the right investment call. He welcomes the sense of responsibility to all the people invested in his funds. He embraces that trust that has been placed in him, relishes the challenge, and enjoys nothing more than to deliver on those hopes.

In the process of translating grand transformational themes into a stock portfolio, Edmund seeks to understand businesses and to forecast a range of outcomes before making a final investment decision.

Trend not to be overlooked: Demographic change. The populations of the developed world are getting older while the developing economies are now the source of new workers. This trend presages a major shift in the balance of economic power in the world.
