Introducing the Schroder Asian Shares Fund

The Schroder Asian Shares Fund is actively managed, investing in a broad range of quality stocks across the Asia Pacific region excluding Japan and Australia. The objective of the Fund is to outperform the MSCI AC Asia ex-Japan (NDR) Index after fees over the medium to long term.

Focus on company quality

The Fund is managed by Schroders’ large and experienced Asia Pacific investment team with emphasis on bottom-up research combined with a top-down macroeconomic and risk control overlay. To be included in the Fund, investments must be assessed as high quality – this means both the quality of earnings as well as the quality of management.  Fund investments must also exhibit superior capital growth profiles.  

Why Schroders?

Research strength to uncover the best Asian investment ideas

We believe that equity markets are less efficient in Asia and that many of the best investment ideas are not well-researched. That’s why we focus on bottom-up stock analysis with the aim to generate alpha over the long term. Our strong locally based analyst team undertakes this deep and broad stock coverage, helping them to identify unique investment opportunities.

Nuanced insights from our Asian presence

With portfolio managers and analysts on the ground in multiple Asian countries, we understand Asia’s diverse cultures and languages. Since the Fund’s commencement in 1995, the team has provided a sophisticated understanding of Asia’s investment market fundamentals, driving sound investment decisions.

ESG integrated investment approach

ESG integration means that our fund managers and analysts systematically and explicitly take account of ESG considerations (such as climate change, environmental performance, labour standards or corporate governance matters) alongside traditional financial analysis with a focus on prioritising investor returns.
