Emerging & Frontier Markets

Emerging and frontier markets represent the fastest growing economies in the world. We believe the continued growth of these markets presents compelling opportunities across a range of industries. Our index agnostic, opportunistic approach has been honed for more than two decades, and the depth of experience garnered within our team allows us to participate in attractive growth opportunities that are off the beaten track for most investors.

Finding untapped opportunities

To identify stocks with the highest return potential the team pursues an idea-focused rather than an index-driven approach. Top-down macro research helps to inform the growth drivers and trends at a country or sector, allowing the team to narrow its focus towards opportunities that are not broadly followed.
