Emerging Markets

Our first emerging markets equity strategy was launched in 1998 and has regularly been improved by investment process enhancements. We have continuously built on our experience through innovation, also with respect to new product launches. For example, all our strategies have incorporated quantitative models since 2001. We offer a wide range of emerging market approaches, and our track record of innovations shows we only launch strategies that have been successfully tested.

Price And Values

The fourth inefficiency that we consider is the market’s tendency to focus on high-quality growth stocks, which can lead to excessive valuations. To avoid investing in overvalued companies, we apply a deliberate value tilt by seeking to identify undervalued stocks whose earnings potential is not yet fully appreciated by the market. SFM analysis is integrated into investment processes of all of our emerging market capabilities, as we consider many SFM factors to be strong leading indicators for long-term earnings.
