Investment summary

Invesco Asia Trust (IAT) aims to deliver significant capital gains to shareholders over a three- to five-year horizon, primarily through investing in Asian equities, following a disciplined, bottom-up process. It has a solid long-term track record of NAV total return outperformance against its benchmark and has delivered annualised returns of 13% pa over the past 10 years. Although the primary objective is capital gains, since 2001 IAT has also consistently maintained or grown dividends, which increased 28% in FY18. The MSCI Asia ex-Japan index has corrected around 18% from its January 2018 peak and the manager believes many interesting investment ideas are emerging.
