Aubrey Global Emerging Markets Strategy

Aubrey Global Emerging Markets Fund - Luxembourg

Total Net Assets
 
 

Overview

Growth in consumption in emerging markets is, in our view, the best long term, structural opportunity in what is an otherwise low growth world. The aspirations of the 5 billion or so potential consumers in the emerging world are much the same as those in the developing world: better food, housing, transport, healthcare, education and entertainment. Aubrey’s wealth progression philosophy attempts to identify those particular sectors of an economy which are at the sweet spot of growth.

The Aubrey Global Emerging Markets Opportunities Fund focuses on these rapidly growing sectors in countries with political and economic backdrops conducive to income growth and consumer confidence. We search for companies with market dominance, preferring local leaders, with cashflow returns adequate to support growth, and with reasonable valuations.

 

Investment Objective

The objective of the Fund is to seek investment returns through long term capital appreciation by investing in Emerging Market companies which are benefiting from the progress of their economies. Our ‘Wealth Progression’ investment philosophy is to analyse the steps a country goes through as its economy matures. This is used to identify new opportunities across different sectors in a predictable and repeatable manner. The Fund provides exposure to this philosophy through active stock picking, combining top-down and bottom-up approaches with fundamental and disciplined analysis within a rigorous macroeconomic and economic framework. The Fund focuses on companies with a market capitalisation of USD1-10 billion that are domiciled, or carrying out the main part of their economic activity, in an emerging market country. The Fund is suitable for investors seeking long term capital appreciation and with a 7 year investment horizon. Please refer to the prospectus for full details of the investment objective.
