The Emerging Markets Equity strategy seeks to invest in high-quality companies with attractively priced future growth prospects. We focus primarily on the liquid securities of large-cap issuers in emerging market economies. GQG Partners' fundamental investment process evaluates each business based on financial strength, sustainability of earnings growth, and quality of management. The resulting portfolio seeks to limit downside risk while providing attractive returns to long-term investors over a full market cycle.

How we invest your money
The Fund may invest in equity securities or equity-linked instruments of companies located anywhere in the world, including, but not limited to, emerging markets countries, frontier markets and the United States. This Fund has no limitation on the capitalization size of the companies in which it invests nor on its ability to invest in foreign securities. It may invest in any country. Frontier markets are not expected to be a meaningful percentage of the Fund.
The Fund employs a long-term focus when analysing companies and constructing a portfolio. GQG Partners seeks to identify companies with a strong financial position, capable management, and promising growth opportunities, which GQG Partners believes are most likely to enjoy sustained earnings growth over time.
Once fully invested, it is anticipated that this Fund will typically hold between 40 and 80 investments. Generally, once this Fund is fully invested, no single portfolio holding is anticipated to exceed 7% of the portfolio value.
GQG Partners' portfolio construction is not dictated by the composition of benchmark indexes because GQG Partners seeks to identify and invest in those constituents of a benchmark whose business prospects GQG Partners believes are inherently superior to the benchmark as a whole.
