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 only the best investment ideas within a portfolio in an attempt to control the potential downside through the use of sophisticated risk management techniques.
