BetaShares Legg Mason Emerging Markets Fund (managed fund) (ASX: EMMG)
Investment Objective

The Fund aims to generate after-fee returns in excess of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index expressed in Australian dollars over rolling five-year periods. The Fund invests in a portfolio of emerging market shares that is actively managed by Martin Currie.

  • Access the world’s fastest-growing economies - Emerging markets lead the world in growth due to strong secular trends like improving demographics, a rising middle class, urbanisation, digitisation and social reform.
  • High conviction, actively managed portfolio - The quality of emerging markets companies varies enormously. The investment manager believes a significant information advantage can be obtained through the Fund’s truly active stock selection process.
  • Embedded Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) analysis in investment process – ESG can have a material impact on a company’s value and is an important consideration in these fast-moving markets, as well as a potential source of outperformance.
  • Local (not multinational) company focus - Increasing corporate diversity and significant barriers to entry mean local emerging markets companies offer better potential for diversification both regionally and at the corporate level.
  • Global technology exposure - Emerging markets are at the forefront of the global tech revolution and are home to leading companies such as Samsung, Tencent and Alibaba. (No assurance is given these companies will be held in the portfolio or will be profitable investments.)
