Emerging Markets

Emerging markets are rapidly evolving. We believe an active, multi-lens approach can help identify cyclical and structural investment opportunities, while mitigating risks.

Emerging Markets Marbles Foreground Hero

Emerging markets’ ability to provide both cyclical and structural investment opportunities is premised on three compelling, underlying drivers: 

Outsourcing

Outsourcing

Physical and digital supply chains have globalised and fragmented, and it is often emerging markets companies that have built the key competencies sitting at the heart of these supply networks.

Convergence

Convergence

A long-term shift in incomes can lead to a convergence with more developed economies in the choices and demands that consumers make. For forward-looking emerging market companies this provides a key driver of growth and profitability.

Innovation

Innovation

We believe conditions are ripe for an explosion in emerging market-led innovation, driven by digitalised economies, large domestic populations, and a new era of policy support. Emerging market companies are playing a prominent role in shaping this next wave.

Our Approach

We believe that investing in businesses at the intersection of attractive country, governance and company fundamentals offers the potential to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns over time.

Our all-cap, style agnostic approach:

  • Creates an expanded investable universe
  • Includes smaller innovative companies
  • Dilutes governance-challenged state-owned enterprises (SOEs)
  • Reduces cyclical industry exposure

Our investment approach centers around hunting for high-quality companies with robust governance in countries with good macro fundamentals.

This results in a benchmark-aware portfolio, constructed and actively managed using a disciplined and rigorous risk-management methodology, providing strong guardrails for a highly differentiated portfolio compared to the emerging markets benchmark.
