Emerging Market Equities

The equity opportunity set for emerging markets (EM) has changed dramatically over the past three decades, as economic growth has translated into increased breadth, depth and maturity in EM equity markets. The geographic, sector, and market-cap composition of the EM index has shifted toward Asia, toward consumption, and toward mega- and large-cap stocks.

Today, the vast majority of global GDP growth is attributable to EM. But EM companies make up a relatively small proportion of most investors’ equity allocations. As emerging markets continue to develop and become more integrated into global markets, their influence is likely to increase. This represents an opportunity for investors to add value to their equity portfolios through EM equity investing. As they seek to capitalise on the opportunities presented by rapid growth and change, investors would benefit from the experienced guidance of a leader in emerging markets equities.
