Zurich, 10 January 2011 - China, India and Indonesia are becoming the backbone
of the Asian economy. To tap this potential Swiss & Global Asset Management is
expanding its range of equity funds with the launch of the Julius Baer
Chindonesia Fund. The fund combines direct exposure to Chindonesia with
investments in satellite countries benefiting from economic ties with the

Swiss & Global Asset Management is adding a new member to its range of emerging
market equity funds. The new Julius Baer Chindonesia Fund is a UCITS III fund
actively investing in selected firms in China, India and Indonesia.
"Chindonesia's economic activity already today equals 47% of the US economy. For
the last eight years the countries have been the top three profit generators in
Asia", underline the fund managers Vincent Lagger and Jian Shi Cortesi. "The
twenty-first century may well become the 'Chindonesia' century."

Economic complementarity, supportive demographics and robust financial health
The key drivers of this development are manifold: Chindonesia is home to 40% of
the world's population (2.8 billion people) and will add at least 170 million
people to its workforce over the next ten years. While known as the
manufacturing hub of the world, Asia - especially China - aspires to leadership
in technology and services within the region and globally. Broad investments in
marketing and research as well as an ever rising number of graduates fuel these

Indonesia emerges as a leading supplier of energy and soft commodities,
leveraging to the growth of both China and India. More importantly, it exhibits
positive demographic trends and financial as well as political stability.
Compared to many emerging countries, Chindonesia exhibits relatively low public
debt, moderate budget deficits and was therefore able to maintain its superior
growth path during the 2008 financial turmoil.

Investment approach - core and satellite exposure
The aim of Julius Baer Chindonesia Fund is to identify stocks early in their
growth phase and benefiting from competitive advantages. In terms of portfolio
allocation, the fund combines a core and satellite exposure in the region. A
minimum of 80% of the portfolio assets are allocated to the Chindonesia
universe, thus creating direct exposure to the three markets and their
underlying drivers.

The remaining 20% can be invested in companies listed outside Chindonesia but
generating a majority of their revenues in these three countries. This satellite
exposure allows investors to tap attractive investment opportunities not
available in the core universe. Key examples are resources (Mongolia and
Kazakhstan), gambling (Hong Kong) or consumer electronics (Taiwan and Korea).
