Company Press Release

Woodland Hills, CA, March 28, 2012 – Guinness Atkinson Asset Management, advisor to the Guinness Atkinson Funds (http://www.gafunds.com/), today announced the launch of the Inflation Managed Dividend Fund (GAINX), a new equity strategy for investors seeking current income and consistent dividend growth that exceeds inflation. The fund will be managed by portfolio managers Dr. Ian Mortimer and Matthew Page, CFA, who have been with the company’s investment team since 2006 and 2005, respectively.

The global strategy, unconstrained by benchmark, utilizes Guinness Atkinson’s proprietary screening process to identify high quality, cash-generating companies to create a portfolio income stream that grows faster than inflation.

“Income oriented investors are facing unprecedented challenges in their search for yield while attempting to manage risk adequately, and the potential threat of rising inflation only compounds their difficulties,” said Jim Atkinson, CEO of Guinness Atkinson Asset Management. “Our new strategy is designed to help play a role in meeting this challenge, with a focus on stable, high-quality companies across the globe that share a common trait: a history of generating consistently high cash flows and consequently rising dividends which produced an income stream growing faster than the rate of inflation.”

The fund seeks to invest in high quality, cash-generating and stable companies to construct an equally-weighted, concentrated portfolio of 35 stocks, diversified by geography and sector. A focus on companies that have generated consistent, inflation adjusted cash flow return on investment in excess of 10 percent for ten consecutive years can lead the investment team to a universe of companies that have flourished even during recessionary periods, while also screening out highly cyclical companies.

“We feel strongly that our process of identifying stable cash-generating companies is preferable to a yield-only approach,” said Ian Mortimer, co-manager of the fund. “Encouragingly, the universe of companies that meets our criteria has been steadily growing, both in absolute size and in global breadth,” he continued.

The team’s investment process includes screening their universe of equities by valuation, cash-flow, analyst sentiment, and stock price momentum. The compact portfolio of 35 equally-weighted names instills a strict sell-discipline to ensure a portfolio of best ideas.

“We are finding opportunities in a wide array of sectors and across the market-cap spectrum,” said Matthew Page, co-manager of the fund. “This diversification, combined with our disciplined portfolio construction, may limit stock-specific and sector risk, reinforcing the strategy’s focus on stability, while still aiming for consistent, inflation-beating growth,” he concluded.
