The Trust aims to produce long term capital growth by investing in an actively managed portfolio of Chinese companies. Up to a maximum of 20% of assets may be invested in companies not listed on a public market (measured at time of purchase). We invest on a long-term (5 year) perspective, and have a strong preference for growth. We are looking for significant upside in each stock that we invest in. The process is driven by rigorous, fundamental, bottom-up analysis undertaken by our dedicated emerging markets team, with input from our China office. The fund managers draw on this analysis, as well as insights gleaned from discussion with all of Baillie Gifford’s global investors, to produce a portfolio that typically holds 40–80 stocks.

Fee Structure

The annual management fee of i 0.75 % of NAV on the first GBP 50m plus ii 0.65 % of NAV between GBP50m and GBP250m plus iii 0.55% of NAV in excess of GBP250m. This is calculated and payable on a quarterly basis. The Investment Management Agreement can be terminated on three months notice.

Dividend Policy

The aim is to achieve its total return through a focus on long term capital growth, rather than income. However, in order to qualify as an investment trust, the Company is not permitted to retain more than 15% of eligible investment income arising during any accounting period. Accordingly, the Board's policy is that any dividend paid will be by way of a final dividend and be not less than the minimum required for the Company to maintain its investment trust status. This will result in future dividends being significantly less than we are paying in respect of the financial year ended 31 January 2022.

Data policy - All information should be used for indicative purposes only. You should independently check data before making any investment decision. HL cannot guarantee that the data is accurate or complete, and accepts no responsibility for how it may be used. Objective, holding data, trust manager and bio information, dividend policy, asset split and fee structure are provided by Morningstar.

The London Stock Exchange does not disclose whether a trade is a buy or a sell so this data is estimated based on the trade price received and the LSE-quoted mid-price at the point the trade is placed. It should only be considered an indication and not a recommendation.

Trades priced above the mid-price at the time the trade is placed are labelled as a buy; those priced below the mid-price are sells; and those priced close to the mid-price or declared late are labelled 'N/A'.
