Weiss Korea Opportunity Ord

The Company’s investment objective is to provide shareholders with an attractive return on their investment predominantly through long-term capital appreciation. The Company intends to return to shareholders dividends received on an annual basis. The Company will be geographically focused on South Korean companies. Specifically, the Company intends to invest primarily in listed preferred shares issued by companies incorporated in South Korea, which in many cases are currently trading at a discount to the corresponding common shares of the same companies. The Investment Manager intends to assemble a portfolio of Korean preferred shares that it believes are undervalued and could appreciate based on criteria it selects.
