Wasatch launches Greater China Fund

Monday, November 30, 2020
Opalesque Industry Update - Wasatch Global Investors announced today the launch of the Wasatch Greater China Fund (WAGCX/WGGCX). The Fund will invest in what Wasatch believes are promising companies located in the Greater China region (China, Hong Kong and Taiwan).

The Fund will invest in a select portfolio of 35 to 50 companies while offering diversification among sectors. To best capitalize on the depth of the offerings available within the Chinese market, the Wasatch Greater China Fund will be constructed as an all-cap portfolio, including small-, mid- and large-cap companies.

Dan Chace, Lead Portfolio Manager of the Fund, said, "In developing the Wasatch Greater China Fund, we have applied Wasatch's classic fundamental, bottom-up investment discipline. We are primarily concerned with finding companies with outstanding quality and long-term growth potential. We believe China is an attractive, relatively inefficient market with excellent long-term investment opportunities."

Since Wasatch's founding, the firm has increasingly and successfully applied the same bottom-up approach across U.S. and international markets. In seeking to replicate this methodical and rigorous approach, Wasatch has prioritized expanding and strengthening the team charged with the Fund's research effort. The firm is pleased to count two native Mandarin speakers among Associate Portfolio Managers of the Fund.
