We think that the prospects for gross domestic product (GDP) growth across the emerging world are generally encouraging and that the economic recovery may continue this year. Furthermore, we believe that company valuations in emerging markets appear to be attractive, as they have lagged their developed world counterparts recently.

Investment Objective

To increase the value of its shares, over the long term, through growth in the value of its investments. The fund invests mainly in a diversified portfolio of stocks of emerging market companies.

Investment Approach

  • Employ fundamental analysis to identify companies with sustainable above-market earnings growth rates.
  • Focus on franchise strength, management team quality, free cash flow, and financing/balance sheet structure.
  • Verify relative valuation appeal versus both local market and broad sector opportunity set.
  • Apply negative screening for macroeconomic and political factors to temper bottom-up enthusiasm for specific securities.
  • Environmental, social and governance ("ESG") factors with particular focus on those considered most likely to have a material impact on the performance of the holdings or potential holdings in the funds’ portfolio are assessed. These ESG factors, which are incorporated into the investment process alongside financials, valuation, macro-economics and other factors, are components of the investment decision. Consequently, ESG factors are not the sole driver of an investment decision but are instead one of several important inputs considered during investment analysis.

We have a broadly neutral weighting in China. While the domestic economy is slowing, we are seeing the authorities beginning to step in to support growth. Our highly detailed research has helped us to identify a number of opportunities here. These include an auto parts supplier that we believe is well placed to outgrow the underlying auto market and which we think offers a compelling balance between risk and potential reward. We also hold a relay producer, which we expect to be a market share gainer in a growing industry, while we believe the company has scope to expand margins.
