Our approach to emerging market equities

Our long-term, fundamentally driven investment process seeks to build portfolios with high active shares, taking into consideration environmental, social and governance (ESG)* risk factors to enhance long-term value.

Potential benefits of emerging market funds

Our global emerging market equities strategies aim to capture the attractive growth potential of the broader emerging market equity asset class.

Higher growth

The funds are exposed to the superior growth potential of emerging market economies.


Inefficiencies within emerging markets provide significant opportunities for active stock pickers.


Exposure to emerging markets offers increased diversification, leading to a more balanced risk/return profile.

*The investment manager always applies the Firm’s Baseline Exclusions Policy and any specific constraints within a prospectus or IMA, but any other ESG factors or risk considerations are adopted at the manager’s discretion.

Key risks

For further information on the risks and risk profiles of our funds, please refer to the relevant KIID and Prospectus.

The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up and can fluctuate in response to changes in currency and exchange rates. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Emerging markets risk

The funds invest in emerging markets; these markets may be volatile and carry higher risk than developed markets.

Derivatives risk

The funds may use derivatives; these can be complex and highly volatile. Derivatives may not perform as expected, which means the fund may suffer significant losses.

Credit and interest rate risk

Bond values are affected by changes in interest rates and the bond issuer's creditworthiness. Bonds that offer the potential for a higher income typically have a greater risk of default.

Illiquid securities risk

Certain assets held in the funds could, by nature, be hard to value or to sell at a desired time or at a price considered to be fair (especially in large quantities), and as a result their prices could be very volatile.

Sustainability risk

The level of sustainability risk may fluctuate depending on which investment opportunities the Investment Manager identifies. This means that the fund is exposed to Sustainability Risk which may impact the value of investments over the long term.
