There are many different kinds of equity funds, and investors should take some time to familiarise themselves with them and choose the sort they want. They can do this by reviewing the Hong Kong offering documents of the funds.
As well as differences in geographical region, equity funds may also differ in the type of companies they invest in, for example. One kind of equity fund is an equity income fund, which, as the name suggests, aims at delivering a good level of income to investors by targeting companies paying attractive dividends. All these types of equity funds are exposed to market movements, which can cause investments to go down as well as up.
Merian Global Investors offers investors various ways to access global stock (equity) markets.
UK and European equities
Award-winning fund manager, Richard Buxton, heads a team dedicated to the detailed research of UK stocks, including large, medium and smaller companies in the UK, as well as European equities.
Global, North American and Asian equities
Our highly acclaimed global equities team, under the leadership of Ian Heslop, uses sophisticated computer-based techniques to monitor global equity markets and to identify attractive investment opportunities. In addition to global equity funds, the team offers specialised funds investing in North American equities and Asian equities (excluding Japan).
Global emerging market equities
Our global emerging market equities team, headed by Nick Payne, aims to grow capital by investing across emerging and “frontier” markets. The managers focus on identifying companies that they believe to possess strong business models and, as yet, unrecognised potential.
Merian Global Investors offers a range of fixed income or ‘bond’ funds. Bonds are essentially a long form issued by companies and governments as a way of raising money.
Different kinds of bonds have very differing characteristics, so we strongly recommended to speak to a financial adviser to help determine whether a particular fund is suitable for your needs.
