Description of business:
Weiss Korea Opportunity Fund Ltd. ("WKOF" or the "Company") is a newly incorporated company registered in Guernsey. The Company has not commenced operations. The Company has appointed Weiss Asset Management LP (the "Investment Manager") as its investment manager and has been registered by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission as a registered closed-ended investment scheme. The Company's investment objective is to provide shareholders with an attractive return on their investment predominantly through long-term capital appreciation. The Company intends to return to shareholders dividends received on an annual basis. The Company will be geographically focused on South Korean companies. Specifically, the Company intends to invest primarily in listed preferred shares issued by companies incorporated in South Korea, which in many cases are currently trading at a discount to the corresponding common shares of the same companies. The Investment Manager intends to assemble a portfolio of Korean preferred shares that it believes are undervalued and could appreciate based on criteria it selects. Some of the considerations that will affect the Investment Manager's choice of securities to buy and sell may include the discount at which a preferred share is trading relative to its respective common shares, its dividend yield, its liquidity and its common shares weighting (if any) in an MSCI Korea Index, among other factors. Not all these factors will necessarily be satisfied for particular investments. The Investment Manager will not generally make decisions based on corporate fundamentals or its view of the commercial prospects of the issuer. Preferred shares will be selected by the Investment Manager at its sole discretion subject to the overall control of the Board. The Company will invest primarily in Korean preferred shares, but it may invest some portion of its assets in other securities, including exchange-traded funds, futures contracts and other types of options, swaps and derivatives related to Korean equities, as well cash and cash equivalents. The Company will not have any concentration limits.
