Fidelity Asia Fund: Strong as an Ox

Fidelity Asia Fund: Strong as an Ox

2021 is the Chinese Zodiac Year of the Metal Ox; strong and resilient and with characteristics we can liken to Asia right now - a region leading the charge for growth out of the pandemic. Astrology also tells us this creature also displays calm, patience, and a keen eye for detail - attributes we use to describe for our investment approach for the Fidelity Asia Fund, which has seen the Fund yield strong results of 16.15% p.a. to investors over the past 5 years*.

Watch Gary Monaghan, Investment Director for the Fidelity Asia Fund update investors on the Fund, the outlook for Asia and a few star stocks in the region including:

  • Alibaba - Why we bought when the market sold
  • Kweichow Moutai - Chinese consumption continues to climb
  • SK Hynix - We all know the structural growth story for technology, so where is the opportunity?
