Matthews China Dividend Fund
Dividends aren’t usually the first thing that comes to mind when investing in China, but perhaps they should be.
As its name suggests, Matthews China Dividend Fund (MCDFX) is designed to deliver current income, and it does so by investing in dividend-paying stocks of companies located in China. The fund also invests in convertible debt along with equity securities to help generate income and total return.
Through the end of August, the 12-month return was an outstanding 18.9%. Top holdings in MCDFX include automaker Dongfeng Motor Group (DNFGY), real estate firm Guangdong Investment Ltd. (GGDVY) and beverage maker Yantai Changyu Pioneer Wine Co.
Plus, you get this collection of dividend payers at an expense ratio of just 1.50%.
