Why Asian Equities

Spanning 14 countries and currencies while going through profound reform at varied pace, Asia can no longer be seen as a homogenous investment opportunity.

While the extremes of volatility often seen in the region warrant a certain investment appetite and have kept investors at bay, we think we are now at an attractive turning point.

After several years of stagnation, earnings from Asian companies are finally picking up. This coupled with the broader global economic recovery, presents a broad, optimistic environment in which suitable investors can delve.

Why BlackRock for Asia

BlackRock provides a range of broad and regional equity strategies managed with both fundamental and systematic approaches.

Led by Andrew Swan, Head of Asian Equities for the Fundamental Equity Division of BlackRock’s Active Equity Group, BlackRock’s range of funds spans the entire reach of the global emerging markets and Asian regions, including a number of funds focused solely on China. Within China, we offer both onshore and offshore strategies.

Investment team and process

The Asian Equities product range now represents more than $16bn of assets under management (AUM) and is supported by a total team of 40 investment professionals, who conduct over 1,500 company meetings per year.
