LONDON, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Highlights of the analysis on Schroder AsiaPacific Fund by Edison's investment trust analysts Andrew Mitchell and Sarah Godfrey are as follows:
Schroder AsiaPacific Fund (SDP) aims to achieve long-term capital growth by investing in companies across Asia, excluding Japan. Matthew Dobbs has managed the portfolio since launch in 1995 focusing on individual stock selection supported by Schroders' considerable Asian research resource. A bias towards value can prompt some contrarian positions while 'real' growth stocks such as Baidu also have a place in the fund. Performance has been ahead of the benchmark since inception and over most periods, with a notable pick-up in absolute and relative performance over the last year.
Schroder AsiaPacific Fund aims to achieve capital growth through investment primarily in the equity of companies located in the continent of Asia (excluding the Middle East and Japan), together with the Far Eastern countries bordering the Pacific Ocean, with the aim of achieving growth in excess of the MSCI All Countries Asia excluding Japan index in sterling terms over the longer term. Until 30 January 2011 the benchmark was the MSCI Far East ex-Japan index, but it was changed to an index that included India to reflect the growing importance of the Indian stock market.
