    Price (Acc)

    These are the shares in the fund that don’t pay out an income to clients. Any dividends – the money a company can pay out to its investors – are reinvested into companies in the fund. Despite no income, the shares should be worth more over time. Good incentive, eh?

    Initial charge

    Some funds charge you when you first invest, which is aptly known as the initial charge. They’re usually between 3-5% but at Bestinvest, we usually don’t charge you a penny!

  • 0.75%
    Annual management charge

    This is how much the fund management company charges to run the fund. It’s like paying a babysitter, dog sitter or house sitter (that makes well-informed, heavily researched changes to improve your baby/dog/house when needed).

    Ongoing charges

    This stands for Ongoing Charges Figure. It’s the cost of running a fund and includes admin fees, manager fees, administration costs, etc.

  • 2.20%
    Yield

    How much the fund is currently paying out in income to investors. It’s NOT to be confused with the overall growth of a fund – a very different thing indeed. It’s also NOT a guarantee of future pay-outs, just a snapshot. This is more what it’s not than what it is…

Prices as at 22 June 2021

The Fund’s objective is to achieve long term capital growth through investment in Chinese securities listed in China and Hong Kong, as well as securities in non-Chinese companies that derive a significant portion of earnings from China.

Investment process

The investment process aims to identify stocks that can offer growth at a reasonable value through bottom up stock selection, taking account of market trends but not being driven by them. The fund manager looks for industry leaders with high entry barriers and low production costs and favours companies whose management has a flexible strategy, as she believes this is an essential requirement for capturing market share and driving earnings growth in China’s changing environment. Ideas are generated by Fidelity’s internal analysts and external research as well as the fund manager who makes frequent company visits and evaluate company specific risk. The fund is unconstrained although benchmark aware and will invest across the market cap.

About the MRI

Our unique indicator: the Bestinvest Manager Record Index (MRI) measures the likelihood that the fund manager is adding value through their decisions. It is based on their performance record over the course of their career, adjusted for the amount of risk taken. MRI is an important contributor to our fund rating system but it is also vital to take account of qualitative factors. It is also very important to select funds to form a cohesive portfolio with an appropriate overall risk level.
