Abrdn fund launch targets EM equities

UK-based fund manager abrdn has launched an income equity fund which aims to tap into the investor interest in emerging markets.

The Emerging Markets Income Equity Strategy is essentially a replica of a UK-domiciled fund launched in 2012 and managed by lead fund manager Matt Williams.

The fund will now be made available to accredited and institutional investors in Singapore and professional investors in Hong Kong.

“We understand income is an evergreen demand of Asian investors,” said David Hanzl, head of wholesale APAC, abrdn.

“The launch demonstrates our commitment as a specialist asset manager to expand our diversified income solutions which are designed to address the growing income needs of an aging population in this region.

“The proportion of emerging market companies paying dividends is now comparable to developed markets. Therefore, we believe the Strategy will provide a new option for investors, presenting long-term opportunities to benefit from high-growth markets and enjoy compelling income yields in the meantime.”
