After learning of the passing of Geoffrey Bobroff, who served as board chair for the Matthews funds, the San Francisco firm issued the following statement:


SAN FRANCISCO, JULY 21, 2014 —Matthews International Capital Management, LLC, advisor to the Matthews Asia Funds, is saddened by the recent passing of Geoffrey Bobroff, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Matthews Asia Funds. Geoff served as a Trustee since 2006 and became Chairman of the Board in 2007.

William Hackett, Chief Executive Officer, said: “Geoff was an extremely well respected member of the Matthews Asia family and he will be missed sorely. Geoff was Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Matthews Asia Funds during a period of great growth in the Funds’ range. He always kept the interests of our Shareholders paramount. He led the Board of Trustees with the highest standards of integrity, professionalism and thoughtfulness. He was also widely known and admired within the broader investment management industry and served it with distinction throughout a career spanning almost five decades and that included being a trial attorney with the Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C., and more recently as President of Bobroff Consulting, a mutual fund consulting and advisory firm. His dedication to the investment management industry was exemplary and we often sought his advice and insights. Our thoughts and prayers are with Geoff’s family at this difficult time.”
