Emerging Wealth equity
The focus of the Emerging Wealth Equity strategy is the identification of companies which we believe have meaningful exposure to growth in emerging markets. Emerging market economies are expected to experience faster GDP growth than developed markets for several years. In addition to investing in companies domiciled in emerging market countries, there are also developed market companies with material exposure to emerging market growth. A strategy of investing in a combination of emerging market companies as well as developed market companies with significant exposure to emerging market domestic consumption provides added flexibility and liquidity to select companies best positioned to benefit from this growth. 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 4-8% with above benchmark performance of +3% (gross of fees). Trilogy’s Emerging Wealth Equity strategy is typically compared to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.
