Quality, value and growth across Asia
Invesco Asia Trust (IAT) has marked the year of its 20th anniversary with the appointment of Ian Hargreaves as sole manager and the adoption of the MSCI AC Asia ex-Japan index as its benchmark. The trust continues to seek capital growth from a portfolio of attractively valued Asian companies, and retains a small weighting in Australia. Long-term performance remains strong in both absolute and relative terms; while the sharp summer sell-off that began in China has had an impact on short-term numbers, the manager is finding growing companies on attractive valuations as a result. IAT has a 2.1% yield and an established record of year-on-year dividend growth.
