WS Guinness Asian Equity Income Fund

The Guinness Asian Equity Income strategy invests in high-quality dividend-paying companies in the Asia Pacific region.

Overview

The Guinness Asian Equity Income strategy invests in high-quality dividend-paying companies in the Asia Pacific region.

The Asia Pacific region includes both developed and emerging economies, and its population – half of the world’s total – is younger than that of the developed world and getting richer. While western economies struggle to sustain economic growth, it is Asia’s dynamism, expanding population and increasing wealth that will shape our economic future.

Once dominated by commodities and export manufacturing for the developed markets of the US and Europe, Asia has mobilised its resources for the production of not only raw materials but also the full range of manufactured goods (from cheap clothing to top-of-the-range electronics). The region’s success in focusing on industrialisation and steadily increasing the value of goods being produced has brought higher wages and household incomes. Rising personal wealth underpins an expanding consumer economy with many more economic participants and higher volumes of transactions. The benefits over time have been reduced volatility in regional economic performance as the rise of the Asian consumer puts the region on a slower but more self-sustaining growth path. From an investment perspective, there has been a flowering of consumer discretionary and services businesses to cater to the growing consumer class. Asia is now no longer simply the workshop of the world, but with its growing affluence is now a key marketplace for cars, phones, clothing, and luxury goods, as well as for health care and financial services

How to Invest in Guinness Global Investors

Investment Case

The Guinness Asian Equity Income strategy is designed to give investors exposure to this fast-growing region. Alongside the growth, however, comes greater volatility and risk. We seek to manage this by investing in companies which have proven records of generating returns in excess of the cost of capital, can successfully reinvest those returns in order to grow, and are committed to paying dividends that can grow over time.

Consistent high return on capital is a good indication of a company’s durability, and its ability to pay healthy dividends. We invest in companies that are unusually consistent in generating returns on capital above their cost of capital.

Our approach to dividend investing is to focus on companies that can sustainably grow their dividend into the future, rather than simply looking for companies with a high dividend yield.

We focus on ‘bottom-up’ stock selection rather than trying to make decisions based on forecasts for the region’s economy. We like to invest in good companies that have, in the short term, fallen out of favour, but that have previously shown an ability to weather most economic environments over time. We invest for the long term and will typically hold a company in the portfolio for between three and five years. The Asian Equity Income strategy invests in 36 companies, with each company having an equal weighting.

 

Why invest in the WS Guinness Asian Equity Income Fund?

The Fund is designed to provide investors with exposure to global equities through a high conviction, low turnover portfolio of consistently profitable dividend-paying companies.
 

Focus on consistent high return on capital

Consistent high return on capital is a good indication of a company’s durability, and its ability to pay healthy dividends. The Fund invests in companies that are unusually consistent in generating returns on capital above their cost of capital.
 

Growth and income

Our approach to dividend investing is to focus on companies that can sustainably grow their dividend into the future, rather than simply looking for companies with a high dividend yield.
 

High conviction

The Fund typically invests in 36 companies, with each company having an equal weighting. This provides a good balance between the benefits of diversification while also allowing each company to add meaningfully to performance. We don’t have a long tail of small positions and by definition we can never just ‘hug’ the benchmark index.
 

Fundamentally driven

We focus on ‘bottom-up’ stock selection rather than trying to make decisions based on an expected outlook for the region’s economy. We like to invest in good companies that have, in the short term, fallen out of favour, but that have previously shown an ability to weather most economic environments over time.
 

Low turnover

We prefer to invest over the long term. We also recognise the increased costs of trading in and out of companies unnecessarily. Typically we will hold a company in the portfolio for between three and five years.
 

Repeatable and independent

Edmund Harriss and analyst Mark Hammonds have managed the Fund since launch. They have developed an investment process that is clear, robust, transparent, and scalable. Their approach filters out much of the noise and hype that surrounds companies to focus on the true signals that drive company valuations. By performing their own company research and analysis, using their own proprietary modelling systems, the managers try to avoid some of the behavioural biases associated with being unduly influenced by market sentiment.

The Fund is designed to give investors exposure to one of the world’s fastest growing regions, which will have a significant influence over our economic future. However, with change and opportunity comes risk. We seek to manage this by investing in companies that:

  1. have a proven record of generating returns in excess of the cost of capital;
  2. can successfully reinvest those returns in order to grow their business; and,
  3. are committed to paying dividends to shareholders that can grow over time.

The case for Asian equities

Asia’s developed and emerging economies

The Asia Pacific region includes both developed and emerging economies, and is home to 54% of the world’s population (4.1 billion people). Its population is still younger than the developed world, and is getting richer. While western economies struggle to sustain economic growth, it is Asia’s dynamism, expanding population and increasing wealth that will shape our economic future. If you believe successful investing is about recognising patterns of change to identify value and opportunities for wealth creation, then Asia is the place to look.
 

Asia has diversified

The Asian economies used to be dominated by commodities and export manufacturing for the developed markets of the US and Europe. The region has mobilised its resources for the production not only of raw materials but also the full range of manufactured goods (from cheap clothing to top-of-the-range electronics). The focus on industrialisation and the steady increase in the value of goods being produced has been accompanied by higher wages and has raised household incomes. This provides the underpinning for an expanding consumer economy with many more economic participants and higher volumes of transactions. The benefits over time have been reduced volatility in regional economic performance and from an investment perspective, has promoted a flowering of consumer discretionary and services businesses to cater to this growing consumer class. Asia is now no longer simply the workshop of the world but with its growing affluence is now a key marketplace for cars, phones, clothing, luxury goods as well as for health care and financial services.

“Rather than rely on production of resources like other emerging markets do, Asia has mobilised its resources for the production of the full range of manufactured goods, and is plugged into the global manufacturing network.”
 

 

Asian economics and politics have matured

Having learned from its own 1998 experience, the region did well through the recent financial crisis. Governments, companies and the financial sector were not over-extended, while companies curbed their expansionary instincts and focused on cash flow generation and profit, leading to a step change improvement in companies return on investment.

Fundamental change to government and society is most often propelled by economic forces. Asia’s experience is no different. Increased individual wealth and economic participation has been followed by increased political engagement as people demand a voice in shaping their and their children’s future. A demand for government accountability has meant more intensely contested elections, usually now won with a commitment to long-term economic planning and reform. Stock market regulation, accounting and disclosure have improved as financial systems respond to market needs.

There is a long-term investment opportunity in Asia. But opportunity and risk go hand-in-hand; the key for investors is finding proven companies and constructing the right portfolio to manage that trade-off.

WS Guinness Asian Equity Income Fund is an equity fund. Investors should be willing and able to assume the risks of equity investing. The Fund only invests in the Asia region; it is therefore susceptible to the performance of that region, and can be volatile. Further details on the risk factors are included in the Fund’s documentation, available on our website. The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency movement; you may not get back the amount originally invested.

Source: FE fundinfo. Investors should note that fees and expenses are charged to the capital of the Fund. This reduces the return on your investment by an amount equivalent to the Ongoing Charges Figure (OCF). The current OCF for the share class used for the fund performance returns is 0.89%. Returns for share classes with a different OCF will vary accordingly. Transaction costs also apply and are incurred when a fund buys or sells holdings. The performance returns do not reflect any initial charge; any such charge will also reduce the return.
