APS Asset Management Pte. Ltd. Key Developments

The Taiwan Fund, Inc. Announces Investment Adviser Selection Process and Further Information on Managed Distribution Program

The Taiwan Fund Inc. announced that the Fund's Board of Directors has established a process for identifying an investment manager to replace the Fund's existing investment advisory arrangements with Martin Currie Inc. and APS Asset Management PTE Ltd. ("APS"). As previously announced by the Fund, APS has notified Martin Currie of termination of the Sub-Advisory agreement between Martin Currie and APS. The Board has engaged a consultant to identify potential candidates to serve as the Fund's investment adviser, and the consultant has provided the Board with a recommended "short list" of candidates for further analysis from a longer list on which the consultant had conducted preliminary analysis. The consultant is expected to provide the Board with its analysis of the short list candidates (along with one or two other candidates that the Board requested the consultant analyze) in early December 2013. The Board will review that analysis and expects to identify two or three candidates that will be requested to provide the Board with additional information. The Board intends to make a determination on the selection of a replacement investment manager in the middle of January 2014. Thereafter, the Fund's stockholders will be asked to approve that selection at a Special Meeting of Stockholders in March 2014.
