About Emerging Markets Equity

The strategy is managed by a team with deep experience investing through multiple market cycles. Its consistent, repeatable process identifies companies across the market cap spectrum to exploit inefficiencies resulting in a differentiated portfolio.

Investment Process

Investment Objective:

Seeks to outperform the MSCI Emerging Markets Value Index over a full market cycle.

Investment Overview:

We believe markets are inefficient, and that these inefficiencies can best be exploited through adherence to a valuation centric investment process dedicated to the selection of securities on a bottom-up basis. Our team focuses primarily on fundamental securities analysis, valuation, and prospects for a return to fair valuation.
