By being adaptable in today’s stagflationary environment, Schroder Asian Income is able to deliver a consistent and sustainable income. This involves seeking income-orientated securities that offer attractive yields and hedge against inflation, such as those in the REITs and utilities space.
Schroder Asian Income has a primary exposure to a diverse range of Asian companies that benefit from the region’s long-term structural growth trends, including the rise of Asia’s middle-class, increased consumption, rapid industrialisation and the acceleration of digital innovation developments.
That said, selectivity is key as we pick out companies with solid balance sheets and quality cashflows that are better placed to ride out the volatility ahead.
The Fund takes an active and nimble approach in response to market changes, and also utilises futures to access markets quickly and efficiently.
This dynamic allocation, coupled with robust risk management, optimises upside potential and reduces risks in down markets.
The fund benefits from the expertise of three well-established teams based on the ground across Asia. This collaborative approach can generate the most efficient access to the best opportunities across all asset classes.
