Fund Description

Based in our Singapore office, Samir Mehta employs a fundamental-based, predominantly bottom-up investment approach. He focuses on Asian companies with quality, sustainable, long-term growth hallmarks. These are businesses that can grow over economic and liquidity cycles and which generate high returns on the financial capital that they employ. Samir builds concentrated portfolios of typically 40-55 stocks, with low portfolio turnover and with little regard to benchmark weightings.
Investment Strategy

Samir's investment philosophy is based on the following beliefs:

  • There are pricing inefficiencies in Asian stock markets, particularly at the individual stock level. This is where Samir dedicates most of his time, with approximately 70% of total value added expected to come from fundamental stock selection
  • Value creation in a company is driven by long-term growth and the ability to generate returns above its cost of capital. Samir therefore focuses on companies displaying long-term sustainable quality growth characteristics
  • Detailed analysis and regular interaction with company management is vital. His analysis gives him the conviction to take a long-term investment view, meaning that portfolio turnover is typically low.
  • Asian markets are frequently driven by macroeconomic and political factors that are separate from stock-specific considerations. These markets have a history of giving high returns but also with high volatility. Samir aims to blend his growth stock focus with cyclical exposure that is valuation-driven and based on top-down views.
Reasons To Invest
  • Proven investment process from an experienced fund manager, based in Asia, with extensive experience of investing in Asian companies
  • An emphasis on quality growth stocks that compound returns over the long term
  • A pragmatic approach that blends a long-term growth focus with cyclical exposure

This may be partly the result of exchange rate fluctuations in investments which have an exposure to foreign currencies. You should be aware that past performance is no guarantee of future performance.

Investors should note that this strategy invests in emerging markets and such investments may carry risks with failed or delayed settlement and with registration and custody of securities. Companies in emerging markets may not be subject to accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards or be subject to the same level of government supervision and regulation as in more developed markets. Government involvement in the economy may affect the value of investments in certain emerging markets and the risk of political instability may be high. The reliability of trading and settlement systems in some emerging markets may not be equal to that available in more developed markets which may result in problems in realising investments. Lack of liquidity and efficiency in certain of the stock markets or foreign exchange markets in certain emerging markets may mean that from time to time the Investment Manager may experience difficulty in purchasing or selling holdings of securities. Furthermore, due to local postal and banking systems, no guarantee can be given that all entitlements attaching to quoted and over-the counter traded securities acquired by this strategy, including those related to dividends, can be realised.

The Funds investment 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.

Strategy Highlights

As at 31 August 2021

The regulatory clampdown in China has spread across industries. In my view, anything that is “addictive” is under the scanner. Games, after-school education, celebrity culture, but also, data hoarding and abuse thereof, and sensitivity to national security. Next comes the discussion about regulating two sectors (other than after school education) which impose high living costs for average citizens - housing and healthcare. China is neither unique in trying to tackle these challenges nor are policymakers in China unique in underestimating the unintended consequences of their actions. The crackdown on education might be well meaning but it has no doubt created anxiety for parents. If the tools used to grade kids and the metrics for employment do not change, will a ban on tutoring solve problems? Similarly, housing is the big dragon in the room. Over the past two decades, rising prosperity aided by almost uninterrupted growth has led to a substantial increase in property prices. However, property is not an island. In China, local governments rely on land sales for the bulk of their revenues. Property developers have amassed a huge inventory of land and financed it with gigantic debt - China Evergrande reportedly has outstanding liabilities of US$300bn on stated equity of US$50bn. It’s offshore US dollar denominated bonds maturing in 2025 trade at a 54% yield-to-maturity for those that are brave enough.

If the authorities do start to clamp down on property, it could take several forms - either introducing or raising property taxes, perhaps taxing capital gains, outright control of prices and rent or perhaps forcing developers to build more low cost housing. It is a delicate balance of ensuring prices do not fall too much, nor is there a loss of confidence by buyers/investors. The ramifications of a policy error will be felt down the chain. Highly indebted developers, construction materials businesses (steel/cement/paint), discretionary sectors (furniture/electricals), and a general knock on wealth effect. I would keenly watch retail sales, property sales and credit growth over the next 3-6 months to decipher what impact this could have. GDP growth is slowing already, but if the policy initiatives on property turn out to be too tight, that could exacerbate a slowdown.

Of course, the PBOC, which in the past 12 months has acted with greater restraint than the Federal Reserve, will be on guard. In a financialised world of protecting asset markets, central banks could/will be forced to loosen policy and drive up liquidity to support asset prices – in this case property. In effect, the unintended consequences could start with slower GDP growth, which may lead to nervousness surrounding a deeper recession, which would mean looser monetary policy, higher property prices and even more debt in the system. 

We have been fortunate with our portfolio positioning. My conviction in owning quality stocks in India have borne fruit. Well-managed businesses with abilities to adapt to disruptions, aided by benign liquidity have delivered for us. At the same time, in July and August, I took advantage of the panic selling in China. I added to our holdings, especially the internet-related names. My comments above display caution about China due to macroeconomic uncertainties. However, many stocks have retraced back to reasonable valuations and many of the risks are somewhat priced in.

Standardised Performance

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 Funds investment 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.

The information provided on this webpage is for professional advisers only. The value of an investment and the income from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount invested. This may be partly the result of exchange rate fluctuations in investments which have an exposure to foreign currencies. You should be aware that past performance is no guarantee of future performance.

Investors should note that this strategy invests in emerging markets and such investments may carry risks with failed or delayed settlement and with registration and custody of securities. Companies in emerging markets may not be subject to accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards or be subject to the same level of government supervision and regulation as in more developed markets. Government involvement in the economy may affect the value of investments in certain emerging markets and the risk of political instability may be high. The reliability of trading and settlement systems in some emerging markets may not be equal to that available in more developed markets which may result in problems in realising investments. Lack of liquidity and efficiency in certain of the stock markets or foreign exchange markets in certain emerging markets may mean that from time to time the Investment Manager may experience difficulty in purchasing or selling holdings of securities. Furthermore, due to local postal and banking systems, no guarantee can be given that all entitlements attaching to quoted and over-the counter traded securities acquired by this strategy, including those related to dividends, can be realised.

The Funds investment 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.

Environmental and Social Characteristics

Amongst other characteristics, the Fund promotes environmental and social characteristics and invests in companies that apply good corporate governance. JOHCM Funds (Ireland) Limited, the Fund’s manager, has therefore categorised the Fund as meeting the provisions set out in Article 8 of EU Regulation 2019/2088 on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector (“SFDR”).  

Consequently, in looking for investments, JO Hambro Capital Management Limited (“Investment Manager”) seeks to avoid investing in companies which contribute to significant social and/or environmental harms, and thereby fail environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) key performance indicators. Consideration is given to environmental impacts, for example, whether a company is responsibly managing its carbon emissions and waste.  Companies are also reviewed for negative social impacts, such as mistreatment of employees or practices which undermine social integration. The Investment Manager uses these ESG performance indicators to assess and monitor its investments, as well as within the investment decision-making process. 

In addition to considering ESG key performance indicators, the Fund applies exclusions to support the avoidance of harms. In order to support the reduction of adverse environmental impacts of the Fund’s portfolio, and in particular its contribution to climate change, the Investment Manager excludes investments in thermal coal mining and unconventional oil and gas, as well as companies which derive 20% or more of their revenue from coal-based power generation or from oil and gas extraction and production. The selection criteria may not be disapplied or overridden by the Investment Manager. 

The exclusion criteria referred to above will be applied prior to making any investment and the Fund’s portfolio will be monitored for any investments which breach these exclusion criteria on a periodic basis. In order to apply this revenue-based exclusion, the Investment Manager will rely on data (and the ESG definitions aligned with that data) from ISS, or such other sources as the Investment Manager determines.  

Additionally, the Investment Manager recognises that ESG factors can create risks and opportunities for companies and as such incorporates ESG risks into their analytical framework and portfolio construction.  

In order to measure and monitor the environmental characteristics of the Fund, the Investment Manager will review the carbon footprint of the portfolio and environmental data published by its investee companies.  For the social characteristics of the Fund, the Investment Manager will review whether investee companies have implemented appropriate policies and structures to support sustainable business practices. 

Governance

Investee companies must follow good governance practices. This requires investee companies to adhere to minimum standards in various areas including sound management structures, employee relations, remuneration of staff and tax compliance. The Investment Manager is a signatory to the UK Stewardship Code 2012, is requesting to be a signatory to the UK Stewardship Code 2020 (together the “Code”) and is a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (the “UNPRI”). As a signatory to the Code and the UNPRI, the good governance practices of investee companies are assessed by the Investment Manager prior to making an investment and periodically thereafter. 

Index

The Fund uses the MSCI AC (All Country) Asia ex-Japan Index for performance fee calculation purposes only and it is not, nor is it intended to be, aligned and/or consistent with the environmental and social characteristics promoted by the Fund. 

Periodic Reports

A description of the extent to which environmental and social characteristics are met will be available as part of the annual report which will be published on this website once available. The Fund’s most recent annual report does not include any information pursuant to SFDR.
