Genesis Investment Management, LLP

Investment Team

The Manager’s diverse group of skilled and experienced Portfolio Managers with enduring personal interest in EM employs a collaborative investment process with individual accountability. The primary division is by country, but team members also take responsibility for global industry research.

The team collaborates on a single investment strategy. Team members recognise the importance of mutual respect and productive relationships, and believe that team input improves the probability of individual investment success. Patience and the support of colleagues are required during inevitable periods of poor performance; while process adherence, openness and integrity are particularly important to achieving good long-term returns.

The team structure is non-hierarchical. Partners are bound together by equity ownership as well as a shared responsibility for their investment process and investment returns for their clients. They steadfastly adhere to the firm culture of excellence, teamwork, and openness & humility.
