Where to find value in Asian equities

Charles Bond, a fund manager on the Invesco Asian equity team, talks to us about the outlook for Asia in this week’s interview. He tells us which markets are cheap, explains why South Korean pensioners are helping to improve governance, and why some dividends have been growing faster than the market. Charles also discusses the Chinese market, giving us four reasons why Chinese equities have lost their shine, but also reasons as to why the team believes the market is still investable. He goes on to explain the challenges of investing in the Australian market, and wraps up with an in-depth view on emerging Asia, flagging Indonesia as a market full of promise.

The content is not intended to be a personal recommendation to buy or sell any fund or trust, or to adopt a particular investment strategy. However, the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Market and exchange-rate movements may cause the value of investments to go down as well as up. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Tax treatment depends of your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment you should seek professional advice. Whilst FundCalibre provides product information, guidance and fund research we cannot know which of these products or funds, if any, are suitable for your particular circumstances and must leave that judgement to you. Before you make any investment decision, make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks.
