Our view on this Fund
This fund does not feature on our Wealth 50 list of what we believe are the best funds in each sector. If a fund is not within our Wealth 50 this is not necessarily a recommendation to sell. However, if you are thinking of adding to your investments, we believe the Wealth 50 is a good place to start. View funds on the Wealth 50 »
This fund combines exposure to the long-term growth potential of Asian markets, with the attraction of a regular income. Zoe Kan was appointed lead manager of the fund in June 2016 and has been involved in its management since launch in 2005. She also has the support of Newton's Emerging and Asian equity team, as well as the group's large bank of analysts.
While Newton has demonstrated a commitment to long-term investing in the Asian region, the fund does not currently feature on the Wealth 50. Jason Pidcock, previously a long-standing and experienced member of the team, left the group in 2015, which we felt was a loss for the remaining team. We would prefer to see how Zoe Kan and the team fare for a period of time before reconsidering its position.
