Important Information

      I. Value Partners Asian Innovation Opportunities Fund (the "Fund") invests predominantly in Asian equity and/or fixed income securities of companies that are related to innovative technologies or business innovations.
      II. The Fund's investments are concentrated in the Asian market and therefore subject to emerging market risks. Generally, investments in emerging markets are more volatile than investments in developed markets due to additional risks relating to political, social, economic and regulatory uncertainty.
      III. The Fund is also subject to concentration risks due to its concentration in the sectors relating to innovative technology or business innovation. Such companies are characterised by relatively higher uncertainty and volatility in price performance when compared to other economic sectors.
      IV. The Fund may invest in small and mid-capitalisation companies. The stocks of such companies may have lower liquidity and their prices are more volatile to adverse economic developments than those of larger capitalisation companies in general.
      V. The Fund may invest in unrated or below investment grade bonds and financial derivative instruments. The Fund is therefore exposed to additional risks, including volatility risk, valuation risk, leverage risk, liquidity risk, correlation risk, counterparty/credit risk, legal risk, over-the-counter transaction risk and settlement risk.
      VI. In respect of the distribution classes for the Fund, the Manager currently intends to make monthly dividend distribution. However, the distribution rate is not guaranteed. Distribution yield is not indicative of the return of the Fund. Distribution may be paid from capital of the Fund. Investors should note that where the payment of distributions are paid out of capital, this represents and amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of the amount you originally invested or capital gains attributable to that and may result in an immediate decrease of the net asset value per unit of the Fund.
      VII. You should not make investment decision on the basis of this marketing material alone. Please read the explanatory memorandum for details and risk factors.
