Pictet Emerging Market Sustainable

A fund that invests in a portfolio of emerging market stocks that are chosen for their positive impact as well as growth potential.

Overview

Pictet Emerging Markets Sustainable Equities fund launched in April 2012, at which time it was one of the only sustainable funds to solely focus on emerging market companies and a key attraction of the fund. The fund attempts to exploit the secular growth story within emerging countries through a quantitative investment process, with a goal to deliver superior extra-financial and financial sustainability. The latter is defined as a company’s economic survival over the long term, and incorporates the notions of longevity, stability and financial responsibility. The process utilises a proprietary quantitative model, used to identify companies that exhibit high sensitivity to indicators such as asset growth, maximum drawdown and financial leverage. In addition, the sustainability analysis incorporates both negative and positive screening.
