Investments involve risk. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The value of an investment in the Fund can go down as well as up. Investing in international and emerging markets may involve additional risks, such as social and political instability, market illiquidity, exchange-rate fluctuations, a high level of volatility and limited regulation.
This document does not constitute an offer or solicitation to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any shares of any Fund (nor shall any such shares be offered or sold to any person) in any jurisdiction in which an offer, solicitation, purchase or sale would be unlawful under the securities law of that jurisdiction. It is the responsibility of any persons wishing to subscribe for shares to inform themselves of and to observe all applicable laws and regulations of any relevant jurisdictions. Prospective investors should consult professional legal, tax and financial advisers as to the suitability of any investment in light of their particular circumstances and applicable citizenship, residence or domicile.

Investors should not invest in a Fund solely based on the information in this document. Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Matthews Asia Funds before making an investment decision. The current prospectus, Supplement for Hong Kong Investors, Product Key Facts Statements or other offering documents ("Hong Kong Offering Document") contain this and other information and can be obtained by Professional Investors by visiting hk.matthewsasia.com.

The Funds invest primarily in equity securities, which may result in increased volatility. It is possible to lose the principal capital of your investment. The Funds may invest in Asian countries and economies. Investments in Asian economies involve certain risks and special considerations such as greater political, tax, economic and regulatory risks. Additional risks relate to liquidity and the repatriation of capital and income due to currency controls which may adversely impact the value of Fund holdings. In addition, single-country funds may be subject to a higher degree of market risk than diversified funds because of concentration in a specific geographic location. Investing in small- and mid-size companies is more risky than investing in large companies as they may be more volatile and less liquid than large companies. Focused funds may be subject to greater share price volatility as a larger portion of their assets may be invested in the securities of a single issuer compared to diversified funds. Distribution of dividends, if any, is not guaranteed. There can be no guarantee that companies that the Funds invests in, and which have historically paid dividends, will continue to pay them or to pay them at the current rates in the future. The Funds do not hedge to attempt to offset certain market risks. This may expose the Funds to the risk of full losses resulting from a decline in a security's value. The Funds may hold investments denominated in multiple currencies. Movements in the exchange rate between these currencies and the base currency of the Funds may adversely affect performance.
The Funds may, at their discretion, pay dividends out of the capital or effectively out of capital in respect of the distribution shares. Payment of dividends out of capital and/or effectively out of capital represents a return or withdrawal of part of an investor's original investment, or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Such dividends may result in an immediate decrease of the net asset value of the relevant shares.
