Investment summary

Witan Pacific Investment Trust (WPC) offers broad exposure to Asian markets including Japan and Australia, adopting a multi-manager approach which tends to smooth the performance fluctuations of individual managers. Current managers Aberdeen, Matthews and Gavekal, all invest across the region pursuing distinct, unconstrained strategies. Although weaker over six months, NAV total returns have been largely consistent with the MSCI AC Asia Pacific Free index benchmark over three years and WPC has outperformed over 10 years. Fees are competitive versus peers, with the board aiming to contain ongoing charges at 1% of net assets per annum. WPC aims to grow annual dividends above the rate of UK inflation; the current dividend yield is 1.7%.
