Investor information

The Manager’s emerging markets investment thesis is based on conviction of the faster growth potential of low- and middle-income economies due to demographics and economic convergence, and the inefficient pricing in these markets.

The Manager believes that careful investment analysis allows the Fund to benefit from the growth and mispricing opportunities in emerging markets.

The value of investments can go down as well as up and there is no guarantee that you will get back the amount originally invested. Your investment should be viewed as long term. Genesis invests in emerging markets which tend to be more volatile than more established stock markets and therefore your investment is at greater risk.
