Linda Csellak

Linda Csellak joined Manulife Asset Management in 2009 as head of Asia Pacific equities. She runs the Manulife Global Fund - Asian Equity Fund where her investment strategy is to uncover 'hidden gems' among companies in any market environment. The aim of the fund is to invest in strong re-rating prospects at early stages of growth - and at low valuations - to capitalise on share price upside as the broader market recognises the stock's appeal. Linda was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa at the College of William and Mary in Virginia and is CFA charter holder. She is currently based in Hong Kong.


The Fund aims to provide long-term capital growth for those investors who hold a long term investment view and are prepared to accept significant fluctuations in the value of their investments. The Fund's investment portfolio will be made on a diversified basis, for which its underlying securities will consist mainly of equity related investments and equities of smaller capitalisation companies in the Asian and/or Pacific region. A proportion of the Fund may be invested in warrants, bonds and convertible bonds issued by, or in respect of, such companies.
