Emerging markets offers a diverse opportunity set and superior growth prospects driven by the long-term, powerful drivers of a young and growing population, rising urbanisation, and a growing middle class.
As long-term investors, we use bottom-up, fundamental research to identify high quality companies with robust balance sheets and sustainable growth potential. Our process for identifying the very best investment opportunities in emerging markets is underpinned by our long-term investment philosophy and belief that companies exhibiting these characteristics are frequently undervalued by the market.
ESG factors are embedded in the investment process and engagement is viewed as an essential element of our analysis. Top-down factors are considered a source of risk, as such, a member of the team is dedicated to macro and political research. Investors can expect relative performance to be delivered on the strength of individual investments and not a particular market outcome.
