Discover the BNY Mellon Asian Income Fund

The BNY Mellon Asian Income Fund aims to provide income with the potential for capital growth over the longer-term (5 years or more).

The Fund will measure its performance against the FTSE Asia Pacific ex Japan TR Index (the “Benchmark”). The Fund is actively managed, which means the Investment Manager has absolute discretion to invest outside the Benchmark subject to the investment objective and policies disclosed in the Prospectus. While the Fund’s holdings may include constituents of the Benchmark, the selection of investments and their weightings in the portfolio are not influenced by the Benchmark. The investment strategy does not restrict the extent to which the Investment Manager may deviate from the Benchmark.

The value of investments can fall. Investors may not get back the amount invested. Income from investments may vary and is not guaranteed.

Why invest?

  • The case for Asia equity income: We believe that Asia Pacific ex Japan continues to offer attractive valuations relative to developed markets. Additionally, the defensive, robust nature of dividend paying companies can create an asymmetric return profile, which, combined with the significant benefits of compounding income over time, can generate strong, long-term returns. We believe this is an attractive strategy against a backdrop of lower growth and increased volatility.
  • Disciplined and sustainable approach: The Fund follows a clearly defined philosophy and process, which combines the use of Newton’s global investment themes with buy and sell yield criteria to create a disciplined and sustainable approach.
  • Unconstrained, flexible, concentrated portfolio: The Fund adopts a high-conviction, active approach, with a long-term focus to capture real and sustainable dividends. The number of stocks held in the portfolio will typically range from 40 to 70.

Emerging Markets Risk: Emerging Markets have additional risks due to less developed market-practices.

Geographic concentration risk: Where the Fund invests significantly in an single market this may have a material impact on the value of the fund.
