EXPLORING UNDISCOVERED ASIA

After a period of slower growth, when many smart investors looked elsewhere, Asia is back. With political and economic liberalisation gathering pace, there's increasing confidence in the economic outlook across the region.

The Alquity Asia Fund focuses on seeking out new opportunities, in exciting frontier markets like Vietnam and Myanmar, as well as the more obvious places, like China and India. Using forward-looking ESG analysis, experienced fund manager Mike Sell has selected around 50 companies - many of them little known outside their local markets - that he is confident will perform well over the next three years . . .
