Genesis Emerging Markets Fund (GSS) was launched in July 1989 and was one of the first emerging markets funds to be listed in the UK. It aims to deliver long-term capital growth through investing in emerging and frontier market equities following an in-depth fundamental approach. The fund’s benchmark is the MSCI Emerging Markets index; however, the manager is not constrained by the benchmark and focuses on investing in high-quality companies with above-average sustainable long-term growth. The portfolio reflects the manager’s highest-conviction stocks and is typically meaningfully different from the benchmark.
In this webcast, portfolio manager Mario Solari explains Genesis’s unique team-based approach to portfolio management. He shares his insights into the culture and diversity within the Genesis team, how the hiring process works at Genesis and how portfolio managers are rewarded.
