San Francisco-based Matthews International Capital Management LLC, America’s largest dedicated Asia investment specialist, has started to offer a number of its Lux-domiciled UCITS on Allfunds Bank, the open architecture fund platform backed by Spain’s Grupo Santander and Italy’s Intesa Sanpaolo Group. As a result the following the Asia-focused UCITS funds will be available to Allfunds Bank’s large network of clients: Matthews Asia Dividend Fund, Matthews Pacific Tiger Fund, Matthews China Fund, Matthews India Fund and Matthews China Small Companies Fund. All the funds are available in USD and GBP-denominated retail and institutional share classes. As of 31 March 2012, Matthews – established in 1991 by the eponymous Paul Matthews - had USD17.8billion in AUM across 13 investment strategies, all of which follow a bottom-up, fundamental investment philosophy with a focus on long-term performance. Jonathan Schuman (pictured), head of global business development at Matthews, said the firm was pleased to be working with a leading platform in Allfunds Bank to bring its clients the opportunity to gain exposure to Asia through their funds, adding: “Matthews’ specialized funds add to the diversity of the international product offerings on the Allfunds Bank platform and this marks an important step in making our strategies more accessible to global investors.”
