Introducing the Schroder Global Emerging Markets Fund

The Schroder Global Emerging Markets Fund provides exposure to a range of developing countries around the world that we consider have stronger growth potential than mature economies. The objective of the Fund is to outperform the MSCI Emerging Markets Index (net dividends reinvested) after fees have been deducted over a 3 to 5 year period.

Emerging markets returns with proactive risk management

We take a rigorous approach to risk control by applying a systematic, disciplined framework. This includes alpha-adjusted tracking errors and a stock stop loss rule*. We monitor country risk using a proprietary top-down model which enables us to understand and mitigate risk. This is important in emerging markets, as less developed financial systems and more concentrated economic outputs can amplify the sensitivity of individual countries to both internal and external shocks.

* This is not guaranteed and may be temporarily suspended during periods of market volatility.

Why Schroders

World-class emerging markets capability

We believe that emerging stock markets can be inefficient and provide strong potential for adding value through active fund management. The size and expertise of our global emerging markets team enables us to harness these opportunities. The team is comprised of 41 emerging markets investment professionals averaging 15 years’ experience*.

On-the-ground commitment to emerging markets

Our emerging market analysts are based globally across eight locations. This local presence better informs our investment decisions and drives more impactful outcomes for investors.

Economic analysis, asset allocation and portfolio construction is centralised in London. Schroders’ global platforms are used for dealing, settlement, risk management and performance measurement.

ESG integrated investment approach

ESG integration means that our fund managers and analysts systematically and explicitly take account of ESG considerations (such as climate change, environmental performance, labour standards or corporate governance matters) alongside traditional financial analysis with a focus on prioritising investor returns.
