Recently Standard & Poor’s (S&P) upgraded WIOF China Performance Fund from its rating of “A” to “AA” as S&P believe that the fund demonstrates very high standards of quality in its sector based on its investment process and management's consistency of performance as compared to funds with similar objectives.

The upgrade of WIOF China Performance Fund to „AA“ shows yet again that the fund is in a class of its own and is above the rest of the pack in its category Emerging Asia-Hong Kong and Chinese Equities and considering that the Fund has a track record of less than 3 years.

The Standard & Poor’s Fund Management Ratings are based on an evaluation of quantitative historic performance, volatility, and portfolio construction) and qualitative (management, corporate status and investment process) factors that contribute to long-term performance measured from A through to AAA.

In Standard & Poor's opinion only funds that adhere to disciplined processes and exhibit strong management are more likely, over the long run, to provide consistent, above-average returns relative to other funds in the same sector.

One must note that a high-rating alone is not sufficient basis for investment decisions and is intended to be used as a first step in the fund evaluation process.
