Emerging Markets Innovators
An emerging markets equity strategy that invests in small and mid-cap companies with sustainable advantages and innovative or disruptive business models.
The investment team uses a bottom-up fundamental investment approach and seeks to invest over a three- to five-year time horizon. Sector and geographic allocation are the byproduct of the companies in which we invest. Our structural growth themes provide a framework for understanding what we believe will be driving forces of equity growth and help guide stock selection. While themes are unchanging, the subthemes and industries are constantly evolving.
