Overview

Client Commitment

A fund that aims to achieve a long-term return in excess of the return that is typically achieved from emerging equity markets. The investment team is comprised of bottom-up investors seeking to create high-conviction portfolios of reasonably valued, high-quality companies.

Why Invest in the Fund

    Long-Term, Quality Focus

  1. The investment team considers companies on the basis that the stocks would be bought and held for five years – allowing the team to select companies in the absence of short-term market noise. The team prefers to focus on quality companies with proven track records, strong franchises and management teams with a history of integrity.
  2. Non-Index Portfolio Construction

  3. The benchmark is not used as a starting point for portfolio construction with sector and geographic exposures the result of stock selection.
  4. Risk-Aware Approach to Capital Appreciation

  5. The Fund provides exposure to the emerging markets opportunity set but in a risk-aware way. The team employs an absolute mindset to risk rather than considering risk as relative underperformance.
