Emerging Markets equity

Trilogy’s Emerging Markets strategy was developed in the mid 1990’s and Pablo Salas has served as the lead Portfolio Manager since that time.  We follow a consistent bottom-up, growth-oriented investment process based on the belief that future earnings growth is a key determinant of potential long-term equity returns. The research discipline focuses on identifying companies with a high level of sustainable earnings power or the near-term potential to achieve such earnings power. Accordingly, Trilogy's portfolios typically contain a mix of both traditional growth companies and early stage growth companies. Our overall goal is to provide above benchmark returns at a moderate level of risk. Over the long term, we believe our tracking error will range between 3-8% with above benchmark performance of +3% (gross of fees).  Trilogy’s Emerging Markets Equity strategy is typically compared to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.
