Global Emerging Markets

Emerging markets are fast becoming the driver of global growth. This underpins the most exciting theme in emerging markets – the rise of the middle class and its evolving consumer pattern, from tourism to the pioneering of new products and services. This inherent potential makes emerging markets an attractive investment destination especially for active investors.

Our range of equity strategies are designed to provide access to the very best businesses operating across the asset class. We offer core, concentrated and ESG-orientated emerging markets strategies, as well as regionally focused China, India and Latin American strategies. Our strategies are actively managed with a focus on fundamental research, enhanced by responsible investment and quantitative analysis.

Established in 2008, our experienced team applies a robust and proven approach to investing. This is driven by bottom-up stock selection and seeks to identify well-managed quality businesses capable of sustaining and accelerating profitable growth. Such businesses typically operate within areas benefiting from structural growth drivers like demographics and urbanisation.
