We think differently about how to deliver income

Asia Pacific Real Income

12 August 2019


We believe Real Asset securities are attractive for low-risk portfolios with stable and growing income streams.
With traditional “low risk” solutions for income (such as cash or bonds) providing insufficient income, we have long believed that equities needed to be a larger part of an income portfolio. We developed an innovative, low volatility equity-based strategy using listed Asia Pacific ex Japan Real Assets that is suitable for income-focused investors and puts the client’s income needs first and foremost.

Key Points

  1. We look for assets that provide high, sustainable income
  2. We look for Real Assets in regions with attractive demographics
  3. We avoid higher risk names
  4. We look for a growing universe of opportunities
  5. We look for direct exposure to Asia Pacific growth
  6. Domestic exposure means low correlation to an ongoing trade war

In the following paper we set out key reasons why we think differently about how to provide a growing income, and why Asia Pacific Real Income has a low correlation to trade wars or economic downturns.
