Asia has been a land of opportunity for investment trust managers in 2017

Asia-focused offerings dominate the list of best-performing investment trusts in 2017 on a total return basis, according to data from Morningstar Direct.

Of the top 20 performers, 12 invest in the region, with seven of those in the top 10. Many have big exposure to Chinese technology duo Alibaba (BABA) and Tencent (00700), which have more than doubled their share prices this year.
