Our approach

Our experienced team apply a non-consensus change-based investment philosophy, resulting in portfolios that are built around best ideas regardless of style implications. The scale and structure of the team allows them to efficiently cover a large and disparate universe while also drawing on the insight from other investment teams across the business. Our style-agnostic portfolios are driven by our highest-conviction investment ideas which are implemented with rigorous risk control. Non-binding assessments of environmental, social & governance (ESG) factors are also incorporated into our process.

Potential benefits

Our range of global equities strategies aim to deliver attractive income and growth potential of the broader emerging market equity asset class and the exciting capital growth prospects inherent in smaller companies.

Higher growth

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


The inefficiencies that often occur 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.

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.

Smaller companies risk

Investments in small and mid-sized companies can be volatile and harder to sell than large companies.

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.
