Why are quality Asian companies so cheap?

August 2016

Guinness Atkinson presents its Q2 2016 webcast covering our strategy for investing quality Asian companies. Our portfolio managers shared the most recent quarter’s performance for the fund and Asia and discussed how their methodology mitigated risk during the turbulence following the UK referendum.

  • Why are there more quality companies in Asia than many would expect?
  • What differentiates Asia from broad emerging markets?
  • Why is the region so cheap?
