Standard Life Investments launches unconstrained GEM fund

Standard Life Investments launches unconstrained GEM fund

Standard Life Investments (SLI) has unveiled an unconstrained global emerging market equity fund.

The Global Emerging Markets (GEM) Unconstrained Sicav will invest in between 30 and 50 stocks and be managed by Ross Teverson. It will follow a stock specific investment approach with a risk overlay.

Teverson will invest in companies from across both the emerging and frontier markets and will operate without benchmark constraints.

Commenting on the launch, Teverson said: ‘A combination of lower indebtedness, supportive demographics and an emerging consumer class is positive for GEM equities and increased trade between emerging economies means emerging market growth is becoming more self-sustaining.’

‘Emerging markets are no longer just a geared play on developed markets.’

The launch of the GEM Unconstrained Sicav markets a concerted push by SLI into emerging markets and follows the launch of its first emerging debt fund for new head of EMD Richard House.

At present, Standard Life Investments has a number of emerging market country-specific funds in its fund range – such as the Standard Life Sicav China Equities and Standard Life Sicav Indian Equities funds.
