Portfolio Manager Commentary

Following policymakers’ accommodative policy shifts, the property sector and service activities stabilised and improved, which was well received by investors. Meanwhile, China’s market valuation remains at historical lows despite the recent rally, suggesting more upside from re-rating. Geopolitical tensions between the US and China continues to dominate headlines and batter market performance. However, we do not see this derailing China’s re-opening recovery thesis. Both economies remain heavily intertwined, and the key thing to evaluate is how policies have the potential to impact the fundamentals of individual companies and building these risks into our analysis.

The underweight exposure to and Meituan proved rewarding as intensifying competition and potential margin pressures in the e-commerce industry led to a sector wide sell-off.

Over the 12 months to 30 April 2023, the Trust’s NAV decreased by 0.3%, outperforming its reference index, which delivered -5.9% over the same period. The Trust’s share price declined 4.6% over the same period.
