Designed to deliver consistent, strong risk-adjusted returns across varying market conditions. Potentially a great anchor strategy.
Our investment process is unique as we begin by selecting our countries before our stocks, taking an active currency view in the process. We will tilt the portfolio value or growth, depending on where we see the current market opportunities. We aim to provide clients with diversification in terms of alpha generation, as our excess returns are generated from both country selection and stock selection. (Diversification neither assures a profit nor guarantees against a loss).
Our Emerging Markets investment team is headquartered in Asia, home to ~80% of the companies in the MSCI Emerging Markets universe. We also have boots on the ground in EMEA and Latin America.
We manage the portfolio within a very robust risk controlled framework, where we utilize a proprietary beta adjusted risk system for portfolio construction and risk management.
Without a waiver, returns would have been lower and any rankings/ratings might have been less favorable.
