Investment summary

Scottish Oriental Smaller Companies Trust (SST) aims to generate long-term capital growth from investing in smaller Asia ex-Japan listed companies, typically with a market cap below US$1.5bn. The investment approach is bottom-up focused stock picking, unconstrained by benchmark considerations. Over the past 10 years, the trust has achieved an annualised NAV total return of 14.6% pa. Performance has been lower in more recent years, partly reflecting the relative underperformance of smaller companies versus large-cap companies, and quality versus momentum. The portfolio has been repositioned over the past two years and is now more concentrated and focused on higher-growth companies. A 14.8% discount to cum-income NAV has scope to narrow should small-cap Asian equities regain favour and the portfolio repositioning bears fruit.
