AAA-rated boutique founder unveils Asia ex. Japan fund

AAA-rated boutique founder unveils Asia ex. Japan fund

Gemway Assets has teamed up with Meeschaert Asset Management to launch a new Asia ex. Japan fund under a partnership agreement, the two French firms have announced.

Formally launched on 14 December, the GemAsia fund will be overseen by Gemway founder Bruno Vanier, who is Citywire AAA-rated, alongside fund manager managers Elena Koshleva and Ariel Ying Wang.

This new approach will see the existing MAM Asia fund, which is run by Meeschaert AM, turned into a feeder fund for the France-domiciled GemAsia fund. It will invest at least 85% of its assets in the GemAsia fund.

It will focus on the Asia ex. Japan equity market while favouring value stocks that show sustainable growth. The Gemway team will also add an ESG overlay to its ESG-focused stock-picking.

The main investment countries of the GemAsia fund will be China (43%), India (17%), Korea (11%), Taiwan (7%) and Hong Kong (7%). The fund will invest in around 50 companies.

Meeschaert Asset Management, which is the AM arm of Meeschaert Group, manages €2 billion in assets and focuses on equity, interest rate, convertible, flexible and absolute return management using a wide range of investment vehicles. It also focuses on SRI investing.

Meanwhile, Vanier, Koshleva and Wang are currently in charge of the company’s flagship fund, GemEquity, which focuses on the broad emerging market equity universe.
