Emerging Market Equities

Artboard 1 copy 5

Home to the bulk of the world’s population yet accounting for around only half its economic activity and in the region of 15% of its listed companies (by market capitalisation) the growth potential of the emerging markets is significant.

Our emerging market specialists aim to deliver long-term outperformance (alpha) by focusing on areas where structural drivers like demographics and urbanisation are at their most potent. Conviction matters as the team seek out high quality and attractively managed businesses – their long-term benchmark agnostic mindset apparent in portfolios characterised by high active share and low turnover.

For investors looking to access the potential of emerging market equities we offer a range of solutions including frontier, global emerging, responsible and smaller company options.

Risk Disclaimer

The value of investments and any income derived from them can go down as well as up as a result of market or currency movements and investors may not get back the original amount invested. Investing in emerging markets is generally considered to involve more risk than developed markets.
