Morgan Stanley Institutional Fund Asia Opportunity Portfolio

MSAWX

Summary

The fund seeks capital appreciation in the long term by investing in companies outside the United States.

The investment process starts with a list of companies in the benchmark index and the research team utilizes quantitative techniques and fundamental analysis to identify investment opportunities.

The research process is driven by fundamental analysis of one stock at a time.

Next, the research team focuses on high quality established and emerging companies located in Asia (excluding Japan) that are estimated to trade below their fair values.

The team favors companies with durable competitive advantages that can generate revenue through growth.

Additionally, the team integrates disruptive change, financial strength, environmental, social and governance factors as part of its sustainability analysis.

Then the manager constructs a portfolio of stocks from a list of companies favored by the research team and allocates capital based on its conviction level.

The fund may also invest in American Depositary Receipts, Global Depositary Receipts and other types of depositary receipts with respect to issuers located in Asia.

Also, the fund invests in securities of companies located in China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.
