LGM Investments is an emerging market equities specialist operating as part of BMO Global Asset Management. With investment teams based in London and Hong Kong, LGM takes an active bottom-up approach to investment seeking out high-quality businesses trading at attractive valuations. The emphasis is on areas where the impact of drivers like urbanization and growing personal wealth are at their most potent – a bias that results greater exposure to domestically orientated businesses.

We invest with a long-term, strategic perspective and do not engage in opportunistic behaviors
