The UCITS version of Nikko’s Asia ex-Japan Equity Fund is headed by portfolio managers Peter Sartori and Eng Teck Tan, and follows the launch of the global equity and global multi-asset UCITS earlier this year.

Nikko has around 200 investment professionals operating in 11 countries, nine of which are based in Asia.

The actively-managed strategy invests in a portfolio of 40 to 60 mid- to large-cap stocks issued by companies in the Asia ex-Japan region.

On-the-ground

“We have launched the fund in response to investor demand for specialist expertise in actively managed investments in Asia ex-Japan,” said Sartori, Nikko’s head of Asian equities.

“The need for a highly-skilled active fund management team with on-the-ground resources and experience in different market conditions is increasing.”

The asset manager plans to launch more UCITS funds later this year, giving investors access to specialist investment strategies.
