Our view on this Fund
This fund does not feature on the Wealth Shortlist of funds our analysts believe have the potential to outperform their peers over the long term. This is not a recommendation to sell; however, if you are thinking of adding to your investments, we believe the Wealth Shortlist is a good place to start. View funds on the Wealth Shortlist »
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.
