Investing in Matthews Asia Funds involves certain risks, including exposure to social and political instability, illiquid markets, exchange rate fluctuations, high volatility, and limited regulation. In particular, investing in securities of emerging markets and frontiers is riskier than investing in securities of developed markets due to the lesser degree of public disclosure and regulatory oversight. Emerging and frontier markets typically have less stringent accounting, auditing, and financial reporting standards, which can result in greater risks for investors, including limited investor protection and less transparency. Additionally, epidemics and other public health emergencies can cause market disruption and volatility.
