Matthews Asia Funds Asia Dividend I Inc

The Sub-Fund seeks to provide a level of current income that is higher than the yield generally available in Asia Pacific equity markets over the long term.
Under normal market conditions, the Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, directly or indirectly, at least 80% of its total net assets, in income-paying publicly traded common stocks, preferred stocks, convertible preferred stocks and other equity-related instruments (including, for example, investment trusts and other financial instruments) of companies located in the Asia Pacific region. On an ancillary basis, the Fund may invest in other permitted assets on a worldwide basis. The Fund will primarily invest in companies that exhibit attractive dividend yields and the propensity (in Matthews’ judgment) to pay dividends.
