Managed by

Dale Nicholls

Dale Nicholls was born in Australia in 1968 and obtained his bachelor’s degree in business management from the Queensland University of Technology. Prior to joining Fidelity, he worked as an analyst, first at Sony and then at Bankers Trust Asia Securities. In terms of fund management style, he follows a bottom-up stock-picking approach, looking for growth at a reasonable price. Long-term growth prospects, returns on capital and management quality are the key characteristics focused upon for company valuation. Cash is not used tactically and derivatives are solely used for efficient portfolio management such as equitising cash flows. Given his funds’ small- and mid-cap bias, David tends to outperform when market liquidity is ample or when the market is driven by sentiment.

Objective

The fund aims to provide long-term capital growth with the level of income expected to be low. At least 70% invested in the shares of companies in the Asia Pacific region, including, but not limited to, Japan, Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. The fund may invest its net assets directly in China A and B Shares. The fund manager has the freedom to invest outside the fund's principal geographies, market sectors, industries or asset classes.
