Key Features

About the Fund

The Schroder Global Emerging Markets Fund provides exposure to a range of developing countries around the world characterised by a stronger growth potential than mature economies. These emerging countries provide the opportunity for premium returns although with higher risks relative to developed countries. The investable universe is commonly defined by the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.

Some of the key features of the Fund include:

  • Opportunities in developing countries around the world, which are typically characterised by a stronger growth potential than mature economies, offering the opportunity for premium returns but with higher risk attached
  • Diversification advantages within a broad investment portfolio
  • Experienced team consisting of 46 investment professionals with an average of 14 years of investment experience
  • Disciplined process targeting added value equally from country allocation and stock selection with active risk management throughout the process
  • Strong proprietary stock research database which provides our investment professionals with instant access by intranet to both internal and external research.

How the Fund is managed

We believe that emerging stock markets are inefficient and provide strong potential for adding value through active fund management. 

Schroders has a balanced approach to investing in Emerging Market equities. We use a mix of top down analysis and bottom up stock selection and look to derive 50% of our added value from country selection and 50% from stock selection. 

We believe that it is inappropriate to apply a systematic style bias across so many countries at such different stages of development. However, given our strong analytical resources we would expect to generally have a bias towards medium capitalisation stocks which should provide extra return potential. We believe that as fund managers we should manage both return and risk.

Our aim is to achieve returns with the minimum level of risk through a pro-active approach to risk control. We believe that applying a systematic, disciplined approach, with a strong team culture increases our ability to add value.
