“Asia stands at the forefront of numerous global sustainability challenges, spanning environmental concerns, social inclusion, and economic development. We see these challenges not only as pressing issues but also as distinctive opportunities for investment, underlining our unique perspective on the region’s potential for positive impact.

We are delighted to receive the Best New Sustainability Fund Award at the 2024 Asian Private Banker Asset Management Awards for Excellence. This recognition reaffirms our commitment to generating alpha and driving positive change through sustainable investing in Asia.”


“Filling a regional product gap in the industry, Matthews Asia’s Asia Sustainable Future Fund provides investors the opportunity to tap into the region’s information technology, industrial, financial, consumer discretionary, and healthcare names,” said Audrey Raj, South Asia editor, Asian Private Banker.

“The fund not only provides exposure to markets like mainland China, Taiwan, and India, but it also has allocations to companies in Vietnam, Bangladesh, and Indonesia.

“Since inception in August 2023, the fund has exceeded its benchmark return and ranked top decile relative to its Asia ex-Japan peers, according to Morningstar. Three positions purchased in the last year – including an Indian lender, a semiconductor design firm, and a Chinese electrical products firm – have added value to this success. Asian Private Banker congratulates Matthews Asia on the launch and the award.“
