Nov 01st 2012 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on Invesco Asia Trust (IAT.L, LSE:IAT, LON:IAT) entitled "Long-term Outperformance". In summary, the report says:
Invesco Asia Trust (IAT) targets long-term capital growth from a portfolio of Asian (ex-Japan) and Australasian equities. It is co-managed by Invesco Perpetual’s Stuart Parks and Ian Hargreaves, who actively manage the portfolio with a view to absolute returns, using a blend of fundamental bottom-up and top-down analysis. Given this active approach, short-term divergences from the benchmark index, the MSCI AC Asia Pacific ex-Japan, are inevitable, but IAT has beaten its benchmark by over 11% under the managers since 2004, despite a weaker performance in the last year.
