Launched in July 1989, Genesis Emerging Markets Fund was one of the first emerging markets funds in the UK. The company seeks long-term capital appreciation through investment in companies operating in emerging and frontier markets or listed on the stock markets of such countries. Performance is benchmarked against the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.
Genesis Emerging Markets Fund (GSS) remains broadly diversified across a range of sectors and countries and is well positioned to take advantage of a further broad-based recovery in emerging markets (EM). In addition, the management team is always on the hunt for refreshing investment themes. EM equities are climbing rapidly back to pre-COVID-19 heights, to the level seen in the 11-year equity bull market, before it corrected sharply in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Stock markets have a history of survival and full recovery from major systemic shocks, and the long-term outlook for EM remains positive.
