Asian economies rank amongst the fastest growing and most dynamic globally. How can investors best tap into this growth whilst coping with the ever changing market environment?
The Schroder Asian Asset Income Fund has been designed to capture the income and growth opportunities wherever they are in Asia, whilst also actively managing potential risks and volatility which is particularly important now, given the current turbulent markets. Having launched in 2011, the strategy is tried and tested across a full market cycle.
The fund invests in high quality Asian businesses, which have proven track records of generating sustainable cash flows, giving the fund a reliable income stream. This is particularly important now, given the current heightened market volatility, lower interest rate environment and downward pressure on yields.
The fund derives its income from multiple sources such as dividend yielding Asian equities, Asian bonds and cash. This fund makes available multiple currencies and monthly distributing share classes (Dividends are not guaranteed and may be paid out of capital)* to cater to different needs. The monthly payout is variable.
*In respect of the distribution units, the manager will declare and pay monthly distributions. However, the distribution rate is not guaranteed. Distribution yield is not indicative of the return of the fund. Distribution may be paid from capital of the fund. Investors should note that where the payment of distributions are paid out of capital, this represents and amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of the amount you originally invested or capital gains attributable to that and may result in an immediate decrease in the value of units.
The fund's flexible approach to investing within and across different asset classes aims to deliver more consistent returns during all phases of the economic cycle. The investment team can increase equity exposure to enhance returns as opportunities arise, and hold government bonds and cash to manage risk when they feel a more defensive stance is required.
