Outside of the important India and Indonesia, for me AAS pips the others to the post - Why?

1. Has the smallest percentage in China, Fidelity Asia has over double the percentage.

2.The largest percentage in Vietnam.

3. I also like how AAS has 9.9% invested in Malaysia and 7.1% in Thailand.

4. How also has none of its investment is in the USA as both Fidelity Asia and Scottish Oriental have.

AASC gives the right to convert at £2.93 per AAS share up to 2025 and gives downside protection of £1

I am considering getting into AAS.

I used to own some CULS years ago for Utilico, now UIL Ltd, (UTL) but the rules were simpler than for these with what appear to be floating conversion terms.

Any cheap advice on either buying only AAS or a mix of AAS and AASC?

Nav falls by 9p per share as per the AR.

"I understand that NAV reduces about 10% if the conv. loan notes are converted to shares, so imo the share price is at 0% discount to the NAV."

Care to explain the logic behind this, it doesn't make sense to me?

RNS today

"Aberdeen Standard Asia Focus plc Including 1616.47p Ordinary
with Debt at Fair Value Income"

Same valuation 2-3 weeks ago was 1680p-1695p

NAV has fallen ~70p but the share price has not.

(I understand that NAV reduces about 10% if the conv. loan notes are converted to shares, so imo the share price is at 0% discount to the NAV....not attractive imo, I am sure that the share price will drift down.

The reported NAV has notably fallen, 60-70p.

But not the share price.
A high chance that the share price will track the NAV & decline a bit.

Yes, that was the one thing I didn't like - my name may suggest otherwise - lol.

I do think it is still a good price here though and should hopefully perform.

Fund Commentary

Aberdeen Standard Asia Focus

Share prices of smaller companies in Asia rose in June, chalking up further gains for the second-quarter. Optimism about the nascent economic rebound bolstered sentiment amid further relaxing of COVID-19 lockdowns. However, worries over the ensuing resurgence in new infections in several countries tempered the mood. Geopolitical risks also ratcheted higher.

We are cautious about the near-term outlook for global markets, given the apparent disconnect between equity prices and economic and corporate fundamentals. With the pace of recovery still uncertain, the sharp rally in equities feels a little ‘too much, too soon’. Governments are grappling with the delicate balancing act of re-opening economies while avoiding a resurgence in COVID-19 infections. What looks increasingly clear is that prolonged lockdowns are proving too costly for many emerging economies. Complicating matters further is the spike in US-China tensions, with the rift broadening out to areas other than trade. Notably, we are paying close heed to the rivalry in technology, which could disrupt smartphone supply chains and delay the rollout of 5G networks. In such a climate, it is no surprise that the outlook for corporate earnings has worsened. Many companies have lowered their profit forecasts, while dividend and capital spending are being cut where possible.

In spite of all this, Asia remains well-positioned as the powerhouse of global growth. Smaller companies in the region have also not featured as prominently as recipients of investment flows, meaning valuations remain relatively attractive. Our focus continues to be on good quality companies that are able to weather the current storm. We believe the portfolio’s defensive characteristics, with companies exhibiting balance sheet strength, visible revenue streams and healthy profit margins, will be invaluable. We also favour market-leading businesses that are hitched to structural growth drivers in Asia. This encompasses trends that have boomed during the pandemic, such as e-commerce and greater adoption of technology, alongside longer-term shifts, including rising demand for healthcare and infrastructure. Our aim will be to take advantage of market gyrations, putting capital to work in our highest-conviction ideas while exiting those with declining prospects.
