Jupiter launches Asian Income Fund for Jason Pidcock


Jupiter has launched the Jupiter Asian Income Fund, managed by Jason Pidcock (pictured), offering investors a portfolio of mainly large-cap Asian equities aimed at delivering income with capital growth over the long term.

The Fund is designed to offer diversification across the Asia Pacific region.
A high conviction portfolio of typically 40–50 stocks, the Jupiter Asian Income Fund has a bias towards some of the developed markets in the region including Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, whilst also seeking exposure to well managed large capitalised companies in Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Philippines and other markets. Jason expects that the Fund will have a high active share, no country or sector constraints, relatively low turnover and low cash levels.
Pidcock, who joined the company in December 2015, has over 20 years’ experience investing in Asia. In his previous role, Pidcock managed the GBP4.4 billion Newton Asian Income Fund, delivering a return of 64.0 per cent over the five years to 30 April 2015 compared with 35.9 per cent for the IA Asia Pacific Ex Japan sector average. Since launch the fund had returned 191.4 per cent against 154.1 per cent for the sector average.[1]
Pidcock uses a fundamentals-based investment strategy, looking to invest in businesses which, in his view, have the potential to grow.  He also looks for a commitment to sharing profits with shareholders through dividends where it is reasonable to do so.  Making an assessment of company management is a key part of his strategy.
The company-level analysis that drives the portfolio sits within a context of wider macroeconomic trends and the manager reviews the wider political and economic environment in the region as part of his investment decisions.
Pidcock says: “The development of a dividend paying culture in Asia means there are appealing yields that can be found. I believe increasing levels of infrastructure development are also creating a broad choice of opportunities. I am also interested in the service sector which has become a key driver of trade growth which is in turn benefitting many dividend paying companies. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Asian and emerging market teams to access the very best opportunities on offer across the region.”
Kevin Scott, head of EMEA at Jupiter Asset Management, says: “Jason has a deep knowledge of Asia’s strongest listed businesses and well established communications channels with their management teams. We hope that the Jupiter Asian Income Fund will prove an attractive proposition for investors looking for geographical diversification potential within Asia through exposure to both developing and more developed countries. We believe that Jason’s investment approach will complement the more growth-orientated, multi-cap strategies currently available in Jupiter’s existing emerging market product range.”
