BROAD UNIVERSE WITH DIVERSIFICATION
The fund selects diverse sources of return from the expanding asset class of sovereign debt across Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. No countries are out of reach.

QUANT AND FUNDAMENTALS
The fund uses quantitative models to forecast market direction and combines this with fundamental analysis to identify the most attractive opportunities.

DYNAMIC POSITIONING
The fund is able to access markets early, uses a nimble approach, and dynamically adjusts positioning.

EXPERIENCED TEAM
John Peta has 18 years’ experience managing emerging market debt. Delphine Arrighi has 11 years’ experience working with emerging market debt.

WHAT YOUR CLIENTS CAN EXPECT

The aim is to give investors access to a diversified portfolio representing managers’views that takes advantage of opportunities primarily in US dollar-denominated sovereign and quasi-sovereign bonds in emerging markets. The fund will also opportunistically invest in local rates and currencies when attractive valuations arise.The fund is managed with reference to the JP Morgan EMBI Global Index, but does not track the index.
