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’s (HFEL) lead fund manager, Mike Kerley, welcomes the resumption of earnings growth in the region after five years of stagnation. He says that attractive opportunities still abound in his favoured areas of cash-generative companies offering high dividend growth potential or high yields, with the recent rise in P/E ratios across the region only partially addressing the longstanding undervaluation versus the rest of the world. The portfolio currently has a cyclical tilt, with more in financials and consumer stocks and less in utilities and telecoms, yet HFEL still pays a high yield (currently 5.4%), fully covered by income. The fund has tended to trade at a small premium to NAV and issues shares to meet demand. The recent introduction of a tiered management fee above £400m will reduce total expenses for investors as HFEL grows.
