Why Invest in the Schroder Asian Asset Income Fund?
Yields on Asian assets remain attractive
With persistently low interest rates across the globe, the Asian market provides plenty of investment opportunities which investors may enjoy attractive income streams. The region has also become an important market for many investors.
The fund’s payouts mainly come from high income-generating Asian equities and Asian fixed income. The relevant asset class indices possess an average historical yield of 5.5% and 3.2% (in US dollar terms), respectively. The fund is a respectable investment choice for investors seeking out sustained income.
Great growth potential in Asia’s capital market
The Asia Pacific region is host to a wide range of economies that enjoy more rapid growth compared to developed markets. In terms of valuations, Asian equities with high dividend yields remain attractive. In addition, yields of Asian bonds are higher than their counterparts in Europe and the US, bringing more attractive potential income to investors. Given continuous favourable factors, the growth potential of high dividend yield equities and bonds in Asia is worth investors’ attention.
