Asia is home to some of the world's most innovative and exciting companies, from today's household names through to the giants of tomorrow.

The Barings Eastern Trust invests across China, India, Korea, Taiwan and the ASEAN region. The region is well positioned in terms of its long-term, domestic driven growth outlook, and the Trust is able to use local insight from our specialist managers to gain exposure to investment themes such as infrastructure spending, domestic consumption and recovery of demand in developed markets.

The investment portfolio is built from the ground-up: the result is an actively managed, high conviction portfolio designed to outperform.

Summary fund objective

The investment objective of the Trust is to achieve long-term capital growth by investing in the Asia Pacific region excluding Japan.

The Trust will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 70% of its total assets directly and indirectly in equities and equity-related securities of companies incorporated in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in the Asia Pacific region excluding Japan, or quoted or traded on the stock exchanges in those countries, including developed and emerging markets.

For the remainder of its total assets, the Trust may invest outside of the Asia Pacific region, excluding Japan, as well as in fixed income and cash.

While the Trust will aim to diversify its investments, allocation to certain countries, industries or sectors may be more than 30% of its total assets depending on the Investment Manager’s assessment at different times.

In order to implement the investment policy the Trust may gain exposure through American depositary receipts, global depositary receipts and other equity related securities including participation notes, structured notes, equity-linked notes and debt securities convertible into equities. The Trust may also invest in collective investment schemes and other transferable securities. It may also use derivatives including futures, options, swaps, warrants and forward contracts for efficient portfolio management (including hedging).
