The AR NEW ASIA FUND is a standalone open-ended fund, incorporated as a public investment company with limited liability under the laws of Mauritius on 30 November 2005, and subsequently transferred by way of continuation to The Cayman Islands on 31 October 2008, where it was then registered as an exempt company with limited liability.

The investment objective of the Fund is to achieve gains through capital appreciation and income mainly from investments in companies whose securities are listed on stock exchanges in Asia excluding Japan, or companies listed on other stock exchanges with significant business interests or business exposure in the Asia Pacific.
