About ICHKX: China’s per capita gross domestic product grew nearly 13 times between 1980 and 2010 according to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service. It took the United States nearly 150 years to match that progress. Mass industrialization has created new markets for consumer and industrial goods and services, accelerating China’s economic growth. On the doorstep of this vast superpower sits Hong Kong, a world-class financial, marketing and technical center. We think China’s rise and the Hong Kong marketplace will have profound implications for our global future. Now you can participate in China’s transformation to an industrialized, consumer society, as well as Hong Kong’s continued growth as China’s most sophisticated commercial center. Our China and Hong Kong Fund invests in stocks of companies that are traded on the China or Hong Kong exchanges or that do at least half of their business in China and/or Hong Kong.

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.
