Emerging market debt

Our strategy takes a distinctive approach to investing in emerging market debt. We recognize the potential returns available from the asset class but believe the timing of an allocation can dramatically affect the returns of a long-only investor. We believe the key to investing in this asset class is to be selective and focus on what we consider to be the best investment ideas within a portfolio in an attempt to control the potential downside through the use of sophisticated risk management techniques.

Opportunity

Access to a potential source of attractive investment opportunities: emerging market debt is a global asset class that offers investors the potential return and diversification benefits of investing in economies at different stages of economic and structural development. We believe there is a range of attractive opportunities, including interest rate, credit and currency plays, for investors able to identify the most appealing prospects.

Unconstrained approach managed by an experienced team: the strategy invests on a 'best ideas' basis, unrestricted by the constraints of investing against a traditional index.

Breadth of opportunity: the strategy can invest across the asset class, whether in government or corporate debt, in local or external currencies, taking each market's characteristics into account.

Distinctive approach aiming for low volatility: investors face a wide range of return possibilities when they invest across emerging market debt and currencies. In particular, the timing of an allocation can dramatically affect the returns of a long-only investor. We believe the key to investing in the asset class is to follow an alternative approach which does not adhere to traditional benchmark-driven norms.

Experienced team: the team members have invested across the spectrum of the asset class through different market cycles and major market events
