In their words (as of 31 Jan 2018)

The trust outperformed the benchmark during January. Stock selection contributed, while country allocation was marginally negative.Stock selection in China continued to be the key source of positive performance. China Construction Bank rose on continued improvement in net interest margins, while Ping An Insurance kept its positive momentum.Other notable contributors included our holdings in industrials in Korea, such as Samsung Engineering, which won a new 0.5 trillion Korean won petrochemical project, and Daewoo Shipbuilding, on expected increases in orders for new ships. Among detractors, AIA corrected after strong performance in December, while Hyundai Mobis continued to slide as margin pressure persisted. In terms of country allocation, the overweight in Indonesia and Korea detracted; however, not owning Philippines contributed, as did out our off-benchmark exposure to Vietnam through the JPMorgan Vietnam Fund. Given the positive newsflow and the supportive growth and dollar trends in place, we believe further upside and outperformance over developed markets are likely this year. That said, uptrends typically experience healthy pullbacks before gathering steam for a run at new highs. Investors seeking to add exposure to Asian equities might look to take advantage of periodic bouts of volatility.
