Selection Criteria

Endowus have selected Aberdeen Standard SICAV I - China A Share Equity Fund for its proven track record, stable investment team, and competitive pricing. The Fund has the longest track record amongst its available peers for retail investors in Singapore. It has also realised significant outperformance against the benchmark, MSCI China A Index, since its inception in 2015, and has consistently been in the top 25 percentile of performers against its global peers. The Fund takes a long-term investment horizon with an emphasis on quality, therefore realising maximum drawdown levels that are better than its global peer’s average. 

The Fund has had a stable portfolio management team since inception, with Nicholas Yeo being lead manager, supported by 12 China analysts covering about more than 100 names.  After the Endowus trailer fee rebates, the 1.14% fund-level fees are very competitively priced against its peers.
