Investing Approaches to Emerging Market Opportunities

  • Traditional and Alternative Methods

Traditional Investing-A Well-Travelled Route

  • Pursues fundamental growth through conventional debt and equity strategies led mainly by macro/micro/valuation metrics
  • Invests mostly with global managers with local footprints

Alternative Strategies- A Congested Route

  • Pursue alternative strategies to capitalize on structural factors/drivers underlying growth and inefficiencies
  • Extract premiums for inefficiencies, complexities and often illiquidity
  • Exploit fundamental and technical factors
  • Invest with local managers (boots on-the-ground) with local expertise and networks
  • Place greater emphasis on downside protection and pursuing managers’ competitive advantage in sourcing, execution, etc. (commonly known as alpha)
