Our philosophy and process
The strategy is conviction-based with no sector constraints, and invests primarily in emerging markets.
A constantly evolving and forward-looking approach seeks to anticipate change, manage risk, and identify opportunities.
The strategy seeks high-quality companies offering attractive and sustainable dividend yields, underpinned by strong cash generation. It employs a valuation screen to help portfolios in their aim to achieve a dividend yield above that of the index.
ESG considerations are integrated throughout the research process and via proprietary quality reviews, to ensure that any material issues are captured.
Every time we consider a security or look at an industry or country, it’s in the context of what’s happening across the world. We believe the investment landscape is shaped over the long term by some key trends, and we use a range of global investment themes to capture these.
Our Emerging Equity Income strategy is managed by an experienced team. Our global sector analysts and investment managers are located on a single floor in London, which helps to ensure that the investment process is flexible and opportunistic. Guided by our global investment themes, the team works together to identify opportunities and risks through research and debate.
