    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).

  • 1.75%
    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.

  • 0.20%
    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…

Investment process

The fund aims to provide long-term capital growth by investing in Hong Kong and Chinese company shares. The fund may invest indirectly in Hong Kong and Chinese company shares by buying securities such as American depositary receipts (ADRs). Research is carried out by Gartmore’s Global Emerging Markets team and combines top down and bottom up analysis. The team are based in London but visit emerging countries including China regularly. The starting point for research is forecasting long term growth rates and returns in each industry. The team then assess the companies within the industry, looking at their structure, assets and management. They use this information to produce future earnings forecasts and discounted cashflow based valuations. The focus is on stocks likely to deliver unexpected positive earnings growth compared to consensus forecasts. Though the analysts’ forecasts are long term, the team also look at factors likely to affect company’s share price over the next three to six months – these are factored in when deciding the timing and size of trades.

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.
