Emerging markets Opportunities in emerging markets

Emerging markets

With their recovering economic growth and robust income generation, Emerging Markets (EMs) could provide investors with some interesting possibilities. Unlike developed markets, EMs can offer investment opportunities that aren't overly dominated by the "new normal" of sluggish economic growth, persistently low inflation, lower long-term bond yields and flat yield curves. In particular, the combination of increasing working-age populations and their rising incomes throughout many EMs could drive spending across a number of sectors.

Investment strategies

Benchmark

MSCI China A (net)

Objective

The China A Equity strategy is a pure equity portfolio, investing mainly in China A-shares, built with a distinctive investment philosophy that focuses on intrinsic value. Our goal is to provide access to the Chinese A-share equity market in a sustainable and risk-controlled manner. The strategy invests for the long term.

Investment philosophy and process

We combine the secular growth story with a relentless focus on value. Each analyst focuses on specific sector(s) and identifies stocks with a significant discount to their intrinsic values, winnowing down the investment universe in several steps. Portfolio candidates are debated and discussed between analysts and portfolio manager through a peer review process. This results in a tightly controlled yet diversified portfolio of 20 to 60 high-conviction plays, opening up a source of true alpha for investors in China. Risk is integral to the process and all portfolios are monitored to avoid uncompensated risks.
