Nikko AM Asean Equity Fund
The ASEAN equity fund invests primarily in listed exchange traded equities of corporations whose businesses are significantly focused on ASEAN (Southeast Asian) countries. The investments are broadly diversified with no specific industry or sectoral emphasis. Though not fixed, Singapore & Thailand are approximately 50% of the exposure given the relative size of their economies and stock markets. The Fund believes in Active Management and a fundamental research driven approach. It is suitable for investors who are bullish on ASEAN economies and seek medium to long term capital appreciation.
Nikko AM Singapore Dividend Equity Fund
The Singapore Dividend Equity fund invests primarily in equities listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange offering attractive and sustainable dividend payments together with a potential for long term capital appreciation. The fund may also invest a small percentage in equities listed outside of Singapore with similar characteristics. The portfolio is structured to provide monthly distributions of 5-7% per annum, though investors may suffer short to medium term volatility in principal value. The fund has received multiple awards in the recent past and does not seek to outperform any benchmark.
HK Equity Tech Stars
HK Equity Tech Stars is a fund strategy based on the mega trend towards digitalization. By 2021 it is expected that digital products and services in Asia amount up to 60% of GDP. To capitalize on this trend, the strategy invests predominantly in Hong Kong listed shares of companies in the digital technology space or other disruptive sectors. The initial selection of stocks is focused on 6 companies with a competitive advantage in their respective field, proven track record and strong growth momentum. Our Investment Committee is reviewing the list of constituents on a regular basis. New shares, either through IPO or secondary offerings may be added over time. Rebalancing of the stocks in the portfolio takes place once weighted allocation moves outside of a tolerance level determined by the IC. Baidu (9888 HK) was added to the portfolio in Apr 2021 after its HK listing was complete.
