    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).

  • 1.68%
    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.

  • 0.10%
    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 achieve long-term capital growth from investment in companies operating in the South East Asia region. The fund manager draws heavily on the expertise of the regional network of Jardine Fleming offices to make both corporate and country decisions. Stocks are rated on a scale of 1 to 5. This process is mirrored by the investment committee, of which Ted Pullings is a member, for the various regions although ultimately stock selection takes precedence to the macro outlook. The approach is to invest in Asia's best companies, which offer transparent management, good growth at a reasonable price and efficient use of capital. The Jardine Fleming research team carry out 3,500 company visits a year. This product should be considered at the higher end of the risk scale relative to the benchmark for investments within this region, as the manager is given considerable latitude versus the fund's benchmark.

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.
