Launched in 1989, Genesis Emerging Markets Fund (GSS) is one of the first UK-listed funds focused on investing in equities in emerging and developing countries. Its primary objective is to deliver long-term capital growth through a bottom-up approach to investing in high-quality companies with sustainable earnings growth. GSS has a solid performance track record, and has outperformed its benchmark over one, three, five and 10 years to end-February. Emerging markets equities have suffered a significant setback in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the fund’s discount to NAV is wider than average, which may present an opportunity for long-term investors.
