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.

I agree that it is good value on a 10% discount and with a 5% yield across many geographies in Asia (not too much direct China exposure) I bought some AAIF!

I hold aas but have thought about selling that and buying this aaif for the divi. Every chart comparison I use is unclear if they include divi reinvestment so it's hard to compare the 2. Does anyone have any thoughts on this issue

Back to the original question , I think it's good value now. I have been watching it for a while and bought this week. Added bonus of a dividend if you buy early next week. I hold AAS and HFEL as well in an ISA

I just had a look as I purchased a chunk of AAIF this week for the SIPP. No stamp duty was applied on the contract note.

I can confirm you don't pay stamp duty on purchases of shares in HFEL, domiciled in Jersey, I don't know about AAIF. If it is in Jersey too, then you wouldn't pay stamp duty on purchases.

They should call it a trust then... Investec even have it as a closed-end fund.

This is a trust not a fund , You do pay stamp duty just like shares. I've got a feeling HFEL is in jersey as well !

Hi, It was me... I'll copy here - if anyone can help! Hi, I'm looking for a bit of advice. I'm trying to compare HFEL and Aberdeen Asian Income (AAIF) because i'd like to get some income exposure to Asia. At the moment I'm thinking that AAIF is the better buy because it's a) on a 9.55% discount as opposed to HFEL's discount of 1.5 b) HFEL has a 12% exposure to China and AAIF only 3.5% (I would prefer a smaller exposure to China) However the yield on HFEL is greater at 7% rather than the 5.4% on offer at AAIF. HFEL has a good record of increasing dividends. Is there a reason(s) I should or shouldn't choose AAIF that i haven't considered ? Thanks!

Somebody on the HFEL thread asking if there are any known downsides to currently investing in AAIF rather than HFEL, apart from the somewhat lower yield. They see this trusts lower % in China as a plus at this time.
