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.
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.
Uniquely differentiated multi-specialist approach, combining local alpha generated by the investment specialists and proprietary country allocation modelling techniques that overweight the winners.
The specialist teams seek out strong growing companies that are well-run & levered to the dominant domestic themes in each region.
~5% annualised alpha over the MSCI Emerging Markets Index
~2% alpha per annum from asset allocation and ~3% alpha per annum from stock selection from the local specialists.
~70% downside capture of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index
~20% annual turnover
The structure allows full transparency and an enhanced risk management and compliance process.
Structure accommodates different client requirements including risk tolerance, geographical preferences, asset allocation restrictions, etc.
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.
