JPMorgan Emerging Markets Income

The fund invests in Emerging Market equities, in large or mid-cap companies that can deliver a progressive dividend and capital growth over time.

Overview

The investment strategy is to invest in a portfolio of emerging market stocks that can deliver a progressive dividend and capital growth over time. The target yield is 130% of the MSCI Global Emerging Markets Index on a 12 month rolling basis, which has been achieved since inception. Stocks are selected on a bottom up basis and must be generating a minimum income yield of 2%.  The manager seeks high quality companies, generating sustainable cash flows, with strong balance sheets and a sustainable dividend policy.  The manager sees dividends as a key indicator of how disciplined a company is with cash flow management and its alignment of interest with investors

 

We like this fund as the manager has the flexibility of investing in stocks with different yield characteristics which we believe provides a better chance of the dividend yield being maintained and delivering some capital appreciation.
