Neither, however buying these will do no harm. I have held these for a number of years 4 or 5 , and like that they have a large partof the portfolio in Singapore, the so called “ Switzerland of the Far East”.

From my last observations about 6 months ago, i seem to recall they have quite a large allocation to Singapore - “ The Switzerland of the East “ , do you think they have swapped stability for risky growth? Hence it appears to underperform , when riskier shares race ahead?

Underperformance on NAV and insipid divided increases. How can SOI manage their % divided increases with what looks lower gearing?. What is causing this underperformance?. Shockingly poor IMV.

I agree. I also bought yesterday. Good price for a long term hold with a nice yield. Could go lower but happy to be in at 196p.

I've bought some today. Happy to hold for the long term. Have nearly all the Aberdeen range of investment trusts. Just the Indian one to go I think.

Just had a run through the Interims. Not alot to say in a difficult half year but for me good that the dividend paid was less than investment income minus all expenses so we had an increase in the revenue reserves. Note that since year end NAV up from 223p to 228p- before taking the dividend ontto account given sterling weakness. Am a lukewarm holder

Thanks as always for that davebowler and interesting point for me as an AAIF holder about dividend cover. Revenue Reserves at 6.17 were £14.6m and dividends paid in the first half year were £9.3m so have reserves for about 9 months. One way I track it is to compare investment income minus total expenses inc finance with dividends; over the last 5 half years in which I have tracked the stock ,dividends have tended to be slightly more than investment expenses minus expenses ie in H1 17 the comparable figures were £8.8m and £9.3m. Basically I am not budgeting for any increase in the dividend in the near future-nor am I expecting a reduction and for me the dividend reserve is adequate. I have not added or sold since my initial purchase August 15 and I have no immediate plans to do anything

Excellent research from Kepler; HTtp://www.trustintelligence.co.uk/investor/strategy/asian-income-16062017 extract.................... In fact, thanks to recent election chaos, the average discount across the AIC UK Equity Income sector has deepened to 6% (as of the 15th June), compared to a three-year average of 3.3%. Discounts across Aberdeen Asian Income, Henderson Far East Income and Schroder Oriental Income have also wide relative to their histories, though the average still stands at 2.4% at the time of writing. Aberdeen Asian Income is the “cheapest” from that point of view, given its current discount of 8.7%. The other two trusts currently trade at small premiums to NAV. A conclusion (of sorts) Obviously, the current price, low level of revenue reserve cover, a penchant for volatility and general macroeconomic headwinds are risks investors need to bear in mind, but the Asian income trusts can certainly be viewed as worthy rivals for the popular UK equity income trusts. Certainly, in a world that is fraught with potential risks, spreading your investments in order to generate diversification seems a prudent strategy. As such, for those who want to make sure their income stream isn’t too dependent on a handful of UK stocks, Asian income trusts may be worth closer inspection.

I have just taken profits until N Korea issues blow over. Happy to leave a little bit on the table for the less risk averse. Has been a good investment and will look to buy in again in due course.

Also held these for some time. In order of size HFEL (for higher yield) then AAiF and UEM, SOI, ANW all good yielded but what has changed is the risk factor in the West UK Europe US has risen both Brexit and Trump, plus the economic growth in Asia still trounces the developed world plus the much better yield environment as UK and other interest rates grovel at new lows. This last had changed the whole picture if you want any sort of decent income with high levels of cash flow amongst many Asian companies. Also have held for some time JII and VOF for Capital Growth not dividend. Having said that growth on the higher income trusts has exceeded expectations. In a changing and uncertain world am happy with Asia - Pacific region.

Yield at current price is approx 4.38% i believe. Been a holder of these HFEL,MYI,SOI,UEM,ANW for around 5 years now - though note to self,if and when they hit 2.40+ again,take a portion off the table. I held thru the drop down to 1.40,and indeed was a buyer again around those levels. Its been a great income provider during this period as well as good growth since the beginning of the year.
