To provide capital growth over the long-term by investing in undervalued securities in the Japan region (i.e. Japan and South Korea). The portfolio will ideally consist of 40 to 80 securities and will typically have 50% or more net exposure. Platinum may short securities it considers overvalued and cash may be held in the fund. The fund may invest up to 25% of its net asset value in the securities of South Korean companies.
Consistent with Platinum's broader investment approach, the fund is constructed on a long bias, long short basis, pursuing mispricing in areas of temporary uncertainty an/or long term change. The fund primarily invests in listed equity securities of Japanese and Korean companies.
