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 30 April 2020

So far, our process of owning good quality companies  – defined as businesses that can grow their top line, generate high or rising returns on capital, focus on cash flows and have an ability to sustain through tough economic conditions – has helped cushion our portfolio from the worst effects of the crisis. 

We did make some changes; we sold out of banks and reduced our exposure to ASEAN markets. The thrust of our screening and monitoring process still remains on quality, but we are also looking to identify companies that might have been hit badly in the initial fallout but could start to see benefits as we move forward. A few guiding principles: balance sheet still matters; the big will get bigger; and trends that were in progress will be accentuated by this crisis.

Let me cite some examples from China. The pandemic is a catalyst for acceleration of omni-channel and online shopping behaviour in grocery and fresh food. Sales surged across Chinese modern grocery retailers, and notably for grocers with competitive advantages in the fresh food category, as cooking became a key element of lockdown life. This was also enforced by a growing emphasis on food safety, health, and nutrition for immunity. Consequently, the growth of online grocery delivery services (e-grocery) was exponential during the outbreak. Consumers reduced out-of-home food consumption and increased cooking at home. 

The focus on health has also driven greater demand for fresh food from reputable retailers and suppliers. For instance, Taobao & Tmall’s meat and vegetable sales grew 274% and 179% year-on-year in February and March 2020 respectively. According to Meituan Dianping (food delivery platform), the sales of fresh food ingredients such as vegetables and meat surged 200% month-on-month. JD fresh channel (including 1P and 3P) sold 88,000 tonnes of fresh food ingredients between 20 January and 18 February, representing 230% year-on-year growth.

According to reports, over 400,000 restaurants in China have started robot contactless delivery programme during the gradual resumption of catering. These are designed to replace employees who are quarantined for 14 days and minimise personnel contact during restaurants operation. Robots can be both sanitary and efficient. Taking Qinglang's intelligent food delivery robot Peanut as an example, the Peanut series  is now used by over 3,000 restaurants, hotels and merchants, such as Haidilao, Grandma's house, Xibei, Guangzhou restaurant, etc., serving 80 million times and with an operating footprint exceeding 2.6mn km. Haidilao's robot can replace one/two food human delivery attendants. With a rental price of Rmb99/day, it costs less than half of a Haidilao employee’s salary (including housing allowances, social insurance, etc.).

Xiabu Xiabu (a hotpot restaurant) has also adopted an upgraded food delivery robot, which can flexibly pass through an 60cm-wide aisle in its relatively smaller stores of Xiabuxiabu. Robots can deliver 300-400 plates per day, equivalent to the efficiency of 1.5 ~ 2 dish attendants. For takeaway, the robot delivers meals to the restaurant entrance where the takeaway rider picks it up directly without entering the restaurant.

Moving on, in all the gloom around us, there have been some positive surprises from Q1 results as they trickled in across the region. One that caught my eye was LG Household, a Korean cosmetics and home and personal care company we own in the portfolio. With duty-free channels and the Chinese consumers as their mainstay in cosmetics, Q1 operating profits in its beauty segment were down 10% year-on-year yet its home and personal care (HPC) business more than made up for that downturn. Overall net profit for Q1 was up slightly, a massive positive surprise for a market expecting 20-25% declines.

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.
