Asian Dividend Pool Keeps Getting Deeper
Asian dividend opportunities can be found across geographies, sectors, and market capitalizations, says Matthews Asia's Jesper Madsen.
Jeremy Glaser: Looking at the sectors, even in the United States, a lot of the dividend-paying stocks are very concentrated in areas like utilities and REITs. Is that the same in Asia, or do you find that there's a broader range of dividend opportunity?
Jesper Madsen: About a third or so of dividends would be paid out by financials. Financials still make up a large portion of the listed companies in Asia, so that's not too surprising.
