Edison issues research review on Utilico Emerging Markets

Utilico Emerging Markets (UEM) aims to generate long-term total return from investing in emerging market equities, primarily in infrastructure and utility companies considered to have above-average growth prospects with a relatively low risk profile. More than 95% of the portfolio is invested in quoted companies, with the majority paying a dividend, which is reflected in the current fund yield of 3.3%. UEM's NAV total return has consistently outperformed the MSCI Emerging Markets index and is ahead of the global emerging market peer group average over one, three, five and 10 years; since inception in 2005, the annualised NAV total return is 11.4%.


UEM's share price discount to cum-income NAV of 11.3% is wider than the 12-month average of 10.4% (range of 3.9% to 16.3%), and wider than the averages of the last three, five and 10 years of 8.2%, 7.9% and 8.3% respectively. UEM has a history of stable or rising dividends, compounding at an annual rate of 4.24% over the last five years. UEM's current dividend yield of 3.3% compares favourably to the peer group average of 2.9%.
