POSITIVES AND RISKS
Total return ranks below peers over the last three years. The Voya Emerging Markets High Div Eqty has returned an annual rate of -5.46% since inception. More recently, the fund has generated a total return of 6.21% in the last three years, -1.44% in the last year, and 1.64% in the last six months. How does that compare to other equity funds? In the last three years, it has outperformed 32% of them. It has also outpaced 19% of its competitors on a one year basis for the period ending 9/30/2014. On a year to date basis, IHD has returned 3.34%.
Downside risk has been above average. IHD has a draw down risk of -31.27%, which is the largest price decline experienced over the last three years. This fund has a three year standard deviation of 18.9%. This fund has experienced a high level of volatility in its monthly performance over the last 36 months. As of 9/30/2014, the fund was trading at a price of $11.80, which is 8.6% below its 52-week high of $12.91 and 2.4% above its 52-week low of $11.52.
High expense ratio hinders performance. On total assets of $266.60 million, IHD maintains a high expense ratio compared to its Emerging Market Equity peers of 1.41% to cover all operating costs. Brokerage costs for the fund to buy and sell shares are not included in the expense ratio. As IHD is a closed end fund, it has no front end or back end load.
Manager lacks tenure but performance is a net positive. Substandard fund managers tend to be replaced, so a long tenure is usually a good sign that a fund is achieving its objectives. The Voya Emerging Markets High Div Eqty has been managed by Edwin Cuppen for only 4 years. Over that period, the manager was able to capture more actual gains in excess of the expected return than 55% of other fund managers.
