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 pan-Asian investment company with a focus on achieving a high and growing income as well as capital growth. While the emphasis on income will naturally lead the management team to focus on some older-economy sectors where there is a long history of rewarding investors with dividends, lead manager Mike Kerley reports that an increasing number of high-growth technology stocks in Asia are now generating healthy cash payouts. However, the manager retains a tilt towards value areas, in line with HFEL’s focus on buying into companies where the current share price does not reflect the underlying business value. The fund has consistently paid a higher dividend than its income-focused peers, supported by an option-writing strategy to generate additional premium income, and currently yields 5.9%.
