Ashburton India Equity Opportunities Fund passes USD100m milestone

RELATED TOPICS​

Ashburton’s India Equity Opportunities Fund has reached USD100 million in assets under management (AUM) just ahead of its four-year anniversary.

The fund, which has outperformed its benchmark by more than 60 per cent over the past three years, is managed by Jonathan Schiessl, Simon Finch and Craig Farley.
 
Schiessl, chief investment officer of Ashburton’s international business, is ranked in the top five India equity managers globally and rated AAA by Citywire. Investment research company Morningstar has given the fund 4 stars for its three-year track record.
 
The fund, part of the Ashburton Investments Luxembourg-domiciled SICAV range, also recently launched sterling share classes to provide better investor access via several platforms.
 
Simon Finch (pictured), fund manager at Ashburton, says: “Reaching this milestone within four years of the fund’s launch reflects the commitment of the investment team to Ashburton’s investment philosophy.
 
“Combined with that is the increased investor appetite for allocating a proportion of their risk budget to an economy that is differentiating itself from the other members of the traditional global emerging markets category.
 
“It is an exciting time for India, with it now being the world's fastest growing major economy, supported by a reformist government, stable currency and strong demographic profile for the next 25 years at least.”
 
The fund is focused on unlocking the value in India’s outstanding growth predominantly through industrial, financial and consumer related companies.
