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

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 September 2020

Banks’ share prices have been hit hard. The latest damage was inflicted by disclosures about lacunae in compliance procedures. However, in my opinion, that is the least of their worries. With the Federal Reserve indicating that low interest rates are likely to persist, banks’ ability to generate internal capital is severely restricted. History shows that when an economy remains mired in deflation and interest rates are at rock-bottom lows, banks are a highly toxic leveraged vehicle. Their share prices do rise occasionally, but those rallies are short lived. 

In my opinion, banks across the world are going through a ‘Japanification’ process. Governments are desperate to preserve jobs. This means ensuring, by way of subsidies at first and later by arm twisting banks to keep zombie companies afloat. From a societal perspective, it could result in fewer job losses, but economically it results in significantly lower returns on capital for a vast number of companies. The trend of lower interest rates over last two decades has already chipped away at the returns that banks made. The lower price-to-book valuations are a direct result of that falling profitability. This gloomy situation is unlikely to change anytime soon.

At the end of September, our Fund has some cash build-up. I reduced our exposure to China ‘A’ shares. Companies like Foshan Haitian, Shenzhen Mindray and Wuliangye have delivered excellent returns and now trade at very high multiples. They are still well-managed businesses, and China’s liquidity and growth environment remains benign. However, mindful of the risks that come from extremely high valuations, we have chosen to reduce exposure. 

Conversely, we have added to our holdings in India, in particular Jubilant Foods and SBI Cards. We admit the optics of Covid-19 in India, the lack of a coherent policy response from the government and the border skirmishes with China all point to uncertainty in the economy. 

I do, however, have stronger conviction in the forced savings situation for consumers across many countries, including India. In aggregate, job losses have hurt incomes. But at the same time, consumers have tightened their belts – forced in some cases by a lockdown or driven by extreme caution. That has hurt activity in the near term, but my view is this has helped build up consumer savings and balance sheets for those who remain employed or find new jobs as the economies open up. My aim is to find those businesses who benefit from the inevitable uptick in consumer spending in 2021 and beyond. Besides, with so many twists and turns this year including the latest shock of President Trump’s Covid-19 diagnosis, holding some cash in October 2020 might not be too harmful. I remain constructive on several stocks and will, if markets correct, look to deploy that cash.

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.
