Maple-Brown Abbott Asian Equity Income Fund – Institutional US Dollar
The Fund is invested in companies listed (or expected to be listed) across Asia that we believe have sustainable and growing income streams and the potential for long-term capital growth and is actively managed.
We believe one of the key identifiers of strong total returns of Asian equities is dividend growth. The Fund’s investment universe comprises companies across the Asian region with a market capitalisation typically above US$1 billion dollars. To narrow the investment universe, we apply two distinct quantitative screening models to identify those companies with both the ability to pay a sustainable and growing income streams, and the intention to reward shareholders with an attractive dividend profile going forward. These dividend-focused screens are complemented by detailed bottom-up analysis including financial forecasts, an assessment of management quality, industry structure and ESG factors.
We manage the Fund on a ‘benchmark unaware’ basis and will typically hold 25–40 stocks.
The Fund aims to deliver an attractive total return, after fees, over a rolling five-year period whilst maintaining a dividend yield in excess of the Benchmark.
