Our Emerging Markets Fixed Income portfolios are managed by our London based team, which includes seven portfolio managers (each a dedicated alpha source specialist) plus a risk management team.
We have a multi layered approach to investing in this asset class, viewing EMFI as a multi asset class suite in which EM rates, FX, sovereign credit and corporate credit should all be considered as separate risk asset classes with their own dynamics and drivers. Our investment team and process are specifically designed to generate alpha from each opportunity set and at each stage of our investment process.
We run specialist strategies dedicated to their respective opportunity set within the overall EMFI asset class; an EM hard currency strategy, an EM local currency strategy and a high alpha strategy that blends the two with an actively allocated risk budget.
