Important Information


India’s promise remains unchanged

We spend our lives looking at companies. Last year we saw 923 companies in Asia. Some of them come to us but the more significant activity is us visiting management in situ. In this and future monthly briefs, we aim to give a better flavour of what we are seeing, be that about companies or other aspects of investing – and which we do not cover in our routine reports.

Fund Managers’ Monthly Report

May 2014

  • Indian equities outperformed most of their regional peers in May on the back of optimism over Narendra Modi’s decisive election victory.
  • The new prime minister announced the appointment of a smaller, younger cabinet than that under the previous administration, in keeping with his pledge of ”less government, more governance.”
  • In Fund-related news, IT services provider Infosys’ shares faltered after the unexpected departure of senior vice president and rumored CEO contender BG Srinivas. Subsequently it was announced former SAP executive Vishal Sikka will be appointed as the next CEO. He will be the first CEO recruited from outside the company. As part of the leadership transition, Founder Narayana Murthy, who rejoined the software company last year as its executive chairman, will step down. In our view, Sikka’s appointment should go a long way towards removing the uncertainty linked to the recent string of senior level departures and he brings with him an excellent track record.
  • Strong growth in retail loans offset a more subdued corporate loan environment for HDFC. Meanwhile, we continue to monitor the asset quality of all of the Fund’s financial sector holdings.
  • Asian Paints’ margins came under pressure from rising costs. However, the company is focused on creating efficiencies and, in our opinion, is well placed to benefit from a domestic recovery, given its brand and distribution network.
  • Meanwhile, pharmaceutical firm Lupin posted healthy results in the face of cost pressures, thanks to healthy U.S. demand, a positive currency effect and a shift toward more niche products.

Section 16 Filings


Pursuant to valuation policies adopted by the Board of Directors of the Fund, the Fund values foreign equity securities that primarily trade in certain markets that close ahead of the Fund’s daily 4:00 pm Eastern net asset value (“NAV”) calculation time at their fair values using prices provided by third-party independent pricing services. The fair value of each such security generally is calculated by applying a valuation factor provided by the independent pricing service to the last sales price for that security, or, if, the pricing service is unable to provide a fair value for a security, at the price at the close of the exchange on which it is principally traded, subject to adjustment by the Fund’s Pricing Committee. These daily fair valuations seek to reflect information available after the local market close that may affect the value of the foreign equity securities held by the Fund. As a result, this official NAV calculation reflects adjustments that may cause it to vary from a calculation based solely on closing prices. In contrast, the “Unadjusted NAV” of the Fund (shown above) is for informational purposes only and is computed using the closing prices on the relevant exchange. It does not reflect any daily fair valuation adjustments of the Fund’s foreign securities. The Unadjusted NAV does not represent the official NAV of the Fund, nor is the Unadjusted NAV used for Fund accounting or performance purposes. Investors should not rely upon the Unadjusted NAV when making their investment decisions.
