Aberdeen New Dawn (ABD) has been using recent falls in Asian markets to reduce its underweight exposure to China (Chinese stocks dominate ABD’s benchmark). The manager has become more comfortable with the Chinese market (see page 13) and has demonstrated its ability to pick stocks, delivering strong outperformance from its open-ended fund focused on the China A share market; this fund forms part of ABD’s portfolio (see page 9).
In recent years, ABD’s performance relative both to its peer group and its benchmark has stabilised. The manager is determined to improve on this and believes the portfolio’s focus on quality and value will be rewarded
