  • The regulatory clampdown in China has spread across industries, and, in my view, anything that is ‘addictive’ is now under the scanner.
  • Next on the agenda is the discussion about regulating two sectors (other than after-school education) which impose high living costs for average citizens - housing and healthcare.
  • Although some caution is warranted, many Chinese stocks have retraced back to reasonable valuations and most of the risks are somewhat priced in.


Past performance is no guarantee of future performance. The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Investing in companies in emerging markets involves higher risk than investing in established economies or securities markets. Emerging Markets may have less stable legal and political systems, which could affect the safe-keeping or value of assets. The Fund’s investments may include shares in small-cap companies and these tend to be traded less frequently and in lower volumes than larger companies making them potentially less liquid and more volatile.
