Emerging Markets Funds


Milltrust's investment platforms host a number of the world's leading country and regional emerging markets asset managers from the developing world. These asset managers operate in a unique, regulated environment where investors are guaranteed a safe, transparent, and liquid custodial platform. The Milltrust range of funds (China, India, ASEAN, South Korea, MENA, Latin America) serve as the building blocks for a truly Global Emerging Markets offering that investors can invest in on a stand-alone basis, or through Milltrust’s discretionary-managed Global Emerging Markets Fund.



The Milltrust Global Emerging Markets (GEMS) Fund is a multi-specialist fund that invests in a limited portfolio of regulated emerging markets equity funds and combines Milltrust’s proprietary quantitative modelling techniques and qualitative analysis to establish the geographical allocation between the different regional investment teams that make up the emerging markets index.

Key Features

The objective is to provide a high conviction, liquid portfolio of best ideas securities from across the developing world and to deliver strong risk adjusted returns across the market cycle.


We favour investment teams with a physical presence in their respective markets and direct access to extensive on-the-ground networks including relationships with companies, industry leaders and government officials in their respective markets.

Our local teams identify investment opportunities using proprietary bottom-up research based on company visits and management interaction.  Investment ideas sourced by our teams are generally not researched by sell analysts.

Having Boots on the Ground, Access and relying on Primary Research provides our local team with an informational edge and strong alpha-generation opportunities due to market inefficiencies.

Portfolio of low-cost ETFs applying Milltrust’s proprietary quantitative country allocation modelling techniques


The objective is to deliver a low-cost, alpha-generating Emerging Markets portfolio that aims to outperform the MSCI Emerging Markets Index over the market cycle.


Milltrust actively rebalances the exposure towards the more favourable Emerging Markets economies by investing through liquid, country index-tracking ETFs. Milltrust has developed a proprietary systematic country allocation process that drives the geographical exposure. The models are based on a scoring mechanism that compares the countries on the basis of quantitative investment factors that have been shown to convey information about future equity returns.


Through Milltrust’s various office locations and our extensive backgrounds managing multi-manager funds and conducting thorough manager research and due diligence, Milltrust offers bespoke emerging markets advisory mandates in hedge funds, traditional investments, and ETFs.


Our advisory mandates also leverage off our proprietary systematic country allocation process that drives the geographical exposure. The models are based on a scoring mechanism that compares the countries on the basis of quantitative investment factors that have been shown to convey information about future equity returns


The country/regional specialist investment teams have demonstrated a significant informational edge in their respective regions. Each investment team has also been appointed to manage a country/regional mandate for their respective geography.
