    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!

  • 1.50%
    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).

  • 1.70%
    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.

  • 0.70%
    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 20 January 2021, fund data last updated 17 May 2011

The aim of this fund is to achieve capital growth through investment in the Asia Pacific region excluding Japan. The manager takes a pragmatic approach to investing in the region, seeking to identify stocks where the consensus may be wrong in its assessment of the firm's prospects. The manager's process is a mix of top-down country and sector analysis as well as in-depth bottom-up company analysis.

Investment process

The Invesco Perpetual Asian Fund aims to achieve capital growth in Asia and Australasia, excluding Japan. The investment process initially focuses on macro economic trends and in particular liquidity conditions that shape the environment for equities. This in turn provides a reference for determining the fund's exposure to growth or value type companies and small versus large cap stocks. Broadly positive liquidity conditions favour growth companies, whilst poor liquidity conditions favour less volatile companies that offer the prospect of greater capital protection. Stock selection focuses on the earnings growth rate implied by valuations, earnings transparency and cash flow. The fund will always have a reasonable weighting to the technology and financial sectors as a result of their large weighting within the index. The fund mandate was amended in April 2005 to include Australasia.

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.
