We invite you to try Our Way, here's how we do it.

  1. The days of wait-and-see are over. More and more of the world’s growth will happen in emerging markets. Advisors, clients and prospects know this by now.
  2. Windows open and close. The impact of emerging markets—as infrastructure is built, corporations mature and a consumer middle class emerges—is being felt across the world, across countries and across companies. These opportunities are dynamic. They present themselves in windows that continuously open and close. A fixed basket of emerging markets countries-only can’t keep up.
  3. Crises are to be expected. Crises need to be avoided, that’s why you hire us. Our objective is to minimize drawdowns. We invest to keep investors invested, moving forward, and we use convertible securities. Because of course we would.
  4. We’re investing, not trading. From time to time, low-quality companies in poor prospect countries will rally. Those are rallies we will miss, more likely than not. Where we invest is based on where we believe capital is treated well and we can manage the significant and inevitable risk of emerging markets.
  5. With growth comes more choice. Advisors have never had more ways, including from more than one provider, to build emerging market exposure for a client. Our differences in how we approach emerging markets are our strengths, how we contribute.
