Japanese and Indian equities top the pile in October

The month of October saw Japanese and Indian equity funds dominate the top ten Elite Rated performers. Global markets have endured an extremely volatile year, but with uncertainty comes investment opportunities.

Japanese stocks have previously tended to outperform when both the dollar is rising against the yen and oil prices are falling, a trend that repeated itself under these conditions during October. Investing in India has become more of an attractive proposition for investors in recent years, with steps to standardise regulations and invest heavily in infrastructure key contributors, and the recently passed Goods & Services Tax bill effectively making India one unified common market. With China’s growth slowing, the world is looking to India to take up the reigns and this bill should certainly help.

Aberdeen Latin American Equity came out top of the Elite Funds, Man GLG Japan Core Alpha came in second and Schroder Tokyo in third place. Meanwhile, all three of our Elite Rated India funds made the top ten.
