FSSA Asia Focus Class B - Accumulation (GBP)
Our view on this Fund
This fund is on the Wealth Shortlist of funds our analysts believe have the potential to outperform their peers over the long term. However, this is not a recommendation to buy.
First Sentier has a long and successful history investing in the Asia Pacific region. In this fund, Martin Lau and his team invest in some of the most promising businesses based across Asia. They look for companies with strong cash flows, an ability to keep costs under control and high standards of company management.
We have long admired their disciplined investment approach and think it should do well in what can be a higher risk area to invest. We hold Martin Lau in high regard and his long term track record is exceptional, though there is no guarantee this will continue.
