Henderson Far East Income (HFEL)

Business description

Henderson Far East Income aims to provide investors with a high level of dividends and capital appreciation over the long term, from a diversified portfolio of investments traded on the Pacific, Australasian, Japanese and Indian stock markets (Asia Pacific region). The fund is classified by the AIC in the Asia Pacific ex-Japan category and, while it does not have a benchmark, sees the FTSE All-World Asia Pacific ex-Japan index as providing the most appropriate comparator. While the fund does hold Japanese investments, they are not expected to be a substantial part of total assets.

Investment summary

Henderson Far East Income (HFEL) is a relatively concentrated portfolio of 40-60 Asian equities, aiming to generate high income with the potential of long-term capital growth. Since February 2007, HFEL has been managed by Michael Kerley. Against a backdrop of the recent rebound in Asian stock markets, he suggests that the attraction of income from Asian equities has not diminished even though he believes investors have been focusing on growth rather than income. HFEL’s 5.7% dividend yield is the highest in its peer group. Having traded at a modest discount for part of 2016, HFEL has returned to trading at a premium.
