This fund aims to provide long-term growth by investing across Asia Pacific markets, including India and Taiwan. Its greater exposure to Japan differentiates the fund from many other Asia Pacific funds. The fund could be used to provide key exposure to Asia, and provides a way to diversify a global investment portfolio. Exposure to emerging markets adds risk and the associated volatility should be taken into account when constructing a long-term portfolio.
We hold David Gait and the team behind the fund in high regard. We like the fact they have lots of experience. They've invested in Asian stock markets and used the same investment process for many years, and it's helped them build a good track record.
We think this fund will do well over the long run. That said, we currently favour other Asian funds that use a similar process, have performed better in recent years and are available at lower cost.
