Our view on this fund
We think this fund's a great way to access Asia's exciting growth potential, along with a regular income. A focus on dividend-paying companies, mainly based in developed Asian markets like Hong Kong and Singapore, makes it quite different to other Asian funds.

This fund offers something a little different to most funds that invest in Asia. We recently met its manager for an update and we're pleased to hear he's sticking to his long-term process.
The Fund objective is to provide income together with the prospect of capital growth to achieve a return, net of fees, higher than that provided by the FTSE AW Asia Pacific Ex Japan index over the long term (at least five years). The Fund aims to provide a level of income at least 20% higher than provided by the FTSE AW Asia Pacific Ex Japan index. At least 70% of the Fund is invested in shares of companies based in the Asia Pacific region (excluding Japan but including Australia and New Zealand). Up to 30% of the Fund may be invested in other assets, including shares of companies based anywhere in the world, open-ended funds (including funds managed by Jupiter and its associates), cash and near cash. The fund manager blends macroeconomic views with fundamental security-specific company analysis to construct a portfolio which gives investors broad exposure to the Asia-Pacific region, ex-Japan. The fund manager is not constrained by any geographical or sector limits. The fund manager will apply a disciplined process to identify shares of companies Which are well-managed, have strong balance sheets and have the ability and willingness to pay sustainable and/or growing dividends over time. The Fund will tend to invest in a carefully selected number of companies with a where the manager has the highest conviction. Target benchmark - FTSE AW Asia Pacific ex-Japan Index The FTSE AW Asia Pacific ex-Japan Index is an industry standard index and is one of the leading representations of the Asia Pacific ex-Japan region stock markets. It is easily accessible and provides a fair reflection of the Fund Manager's investment universe and a good relative measure to assess performance outcomes. Comparator benchmark - IA Asia Pacific Ex Japan Sector Many funds sold in the UK are grouped into sectors by the Investment Association (the trade body that represents UK investment managers), to help investors to compare funds with broadly similar characteristics. This Fund is classified in the IA Asia Pacific Ex Japan Sector. The Fund is actively managed. This means the fund manager is taking investment decisions with the intention of achieving the Fund's investment objective; this may include decisions regarding asset selection, regional allocation, sector views and overall level of exposure to the market. The fund manager is not in any way constrained by a benchmark in their portfolio positioning, and will not hold all, or indeed may not any, of the benchmark constituents.
