Distinctive strategies

With a multi-boutique investment platform — backed by our private partnership structure — and no chief investment officer, we give each portfolio manager the freedom to build innovative investment approaches. We offer distinctive strategies focused on meeting investors’ needs.

Broad and deep research

Our research capabilities are as broad as emerging economies themselves. We have around 50 global industry analysts covering over 1,000 emerging markets stocks. In addition to visiting companies, our emerging markets specialists conduct grassroots research into areas such as changing lifestyles and consumption patterns.

Global collaboration

Our equity investors collaborate daily with colleagues specialising in fixed income, commodities, macroeconomics and ESG. Our credit and equity analysts often have joint meetings with company management teams so that we can form a holistic view of the health of a company.
