petewy: yes Dave quote The focus on dividends, quality (in terms of balance sheet strength) and valuation lends this strategy an element of balance, which should level out some of the more pronounced peaks and troughs that can affect more polarised income strategies. Within the peer group, AAIF remains a core option for investors seeking to globally diversify their sources of income via exposure to a range of fast-
essentialinvestor: May be back over £2.30 a share this week.
gateside: Declaration of Fourth Interim Dividend The Directors of the Company have today declared an increased fourth interim dividend in respect of the year ended 31 December 2021 of 2.75p per Ordinary share of No Par Value (fourth interim for 2020: 2.55p). The fourth interim dividend will be payable on 17 February 2022 to Ordinary shareholders on the register on 21 January 2022, ex-dividend date 20 January 2022. The total dividend for 2021 amounts to 9.5p (2020: 9.30p) and the Board is pleased to note that this represents the thirteenth consecutive year of annual dividend increases. In the absence of unforeseen circumstances, it is the Board's intention to declare three interim dividends of 2.25p per Ordinary share in respect of the year to 31 December 2022. A decision on the level of the fourth interim dividend will, as this year, be made post the period end, in January 2023.
biggest bill: Does the change of tax residency mean that stamp duty is now payable on share buys?
speedsgh: AAIF investment manager, Yoojeong Oh, is presenting at the forthcoming Kepler Trust Intelligence webinar titled "Now that's what I call a discount!" which will include presentations from six investment trusts, all of which have the potential to benefit from narrowing discounts, and each with a compelling argument to support the case for that to happen.

essentialinvestor: Arguably AAIF is still the best value in the sector on a 10% approx NAV discount.
essentialinvestor: SOI now trading very close to NAV.
goldpiguk: Hi davebowler, Today I reached my target ISA holding of 10,000 shares in AAIF, with the purchase of 1,050 shares. The shares are currently trading at 224-228, a little below the 233 shown on the advfn graph at time of purchase. In recent years AAIF has put in a rather lacklustre performance compared to its peers. Having said that my total AAIF holding is up about 20% on my average purchase price. All my AAIF shares were purchased over the last year. As your posts show, the income including and excluding NAV are currently the same,(this is the case when income does not fully cover payout when xd) but there is good reason to think that over the next year or two dividend income growth should trend higher. The two largest (heavily weighted) holdings in the AAIF portfolio have excellent dividend growth prospects. I would expect the significant discount to NAV to reduce over time, especially since Asia should benefit from portfolio rebalancing as we come out of the global pandemic. This geographic area also looks undervalued compared to other geographic regions. In the Asian sector I also hold HFEL. I still remain cautious on dividend sustainabilty/growth at HFEL, which trades at or near NAV with an already very high dividend payout. I am now starting to finalise which IT I will start to build a new position in. I hold EDIN, DIG, MRCH, AAIF and HFEL in my ISA portfolio. Goldpig
goldpiguk: Hi speedsgh, Of course I don't mind you asking. It is still very early days in my decision making progress. Should I consider a country specific trust, like Fidelity China Special Situations (FCSS), or another Asian Pacific trust such as Schroder Asian Pacific Fund (SDP)or the Oriental Income Fund (SOI)? At the moment I have not found an obvious answer or stand out buy. This year I have been much slower funding my ISA (largely because of the pandemic). Being self employed,I have been keeping larger amounts in cash than normal. I expect to continue dribbling money into my ISA, adding to AAIF and possibly a few more HFEL, so it will not be until the summer of 2021 when I need to make a final decision on my third asian trust. I now hold 7,000 AAIF, with a target holding of 10,000-12,000 shares. My normal book value is up to about £50,000 for the UK IT sector. (Due to the pandemic I exceeded this with my EDIN investment.) For IT's in the Asian sector I currently have a £25,000 investment ceiling in any one comapany. This is in part because I know less about Asian markets and don't follow them as closely, so want to spread the risk a little more. In any decision my criteria will be far less about income and much more about growth. Goldpig
goldpiguk: Hi EssentialInvestor, I have been quietly adding to these over the last few months. I am becoming increasingly convinced that Asia will emerge from the coronavirus pandemic, in rather better shape than many western economies. Asia still offers enormous growth prospects over the next decade, but of course is not without risk. My intention is to build holdings in several Asian orientated IT's. I currently hold HFEL and AAIF. I decided not to add to HFEL: the dividend seems almost too good to be true! AAIF has a couple of very large holdings in the portfolio, which could hold performance back if Taiwan Semiconductor, for instance, does not live up to expectations. However if the projections I have seen for Taiwan Semiconductor turn out to be accurate those shares have a long way to go; so there is the potential for AAIF to outperform its peers. Although I feel a little uncertain about AAIF maintaining its current dividend payments in 2021, I have my eye more on 2030 and the potential overall return. AAIF should do well, taking a ten year view. Goldpig
