Fund Characteristics

The Fund seeks to invest in emerging markets companies across the market cap spectrum with superior quality and growth characteristics relative to competitors.

Investment Approach

  • The Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in emerging markets' securities
  • Normally the Fund's investments will be allocated among at least six different countries and will not concentrate investments in any particular industry
  • The Fund will seek investment opportunities in companies at different stages of development ranging from large well-established companies to smaller companies at an earlier stage of development

Why Consider This Fund?

  • Provides a diversified all cap portfolio with consistent small cap exposure and a broad allocation to sectors and countries – including frontier markets
  • Historically consumer-focused, reflecting a growing opportunity set
  • Managed by a seasoned team with decades of emerging markets experience
  • The Fund is actively managed and is not constrained by a benchmark


  • The value of shares and any income from them can increase or decrease and an investor may not get back the amount originally invested
  • Where investments are made in currencies other than an investor's base currency, the value of those investments will be affected (favourably or unfavourably) by movements in exchange rates
  • Equity securities may decrease in value in response to the activities of an individual company or in response to general market, business, and economic conditions
  • Emerging markets investments typically involve special risk considerations, including higher volatility, lower liquidity, economic and political risk
