BlackRock Global Fund Asian Dragon

BGF Asian Dragon remains an attractive investment proposition, though it comes with a few caveats. 

Veteran manager Andrew Swan has managed the fund since he joined BlackRock in August 2011. He is an astute investor, as seen from his stellar track records on his Asia Pacific equity mandate at former employer JP Morgan.

Swan adopts a style-agnostic investment process which combines top-down and bottom-up analysis, with the aim to outperform in different market conditions. While he has implemented such process over a full market cycle and used it to good effect, the process heavily relies on him to set style preferences and execute at the right time.
