Hermes Global Emerging Markets
An equity fund investing predominately in stocks of emerging market countries.
The Hermes Global Emerging Markets fund provides investors with a diverse portfolio of predominantly large cap stocks. The team, led by Gary, employ a thorough investment process that combines a detailed understanding of country risk together with the usual fundamental analysis of companies to identify potential investments. Hermes are also very strong on ESG risk factors through the EOS equity stewardship business, insights that are invaluable in the emerging markets.
We like this fund as Gary has over 20 years’ experience in emerging markets and approaches identification of investment ideas and portfolio management with an acute sense of downside risk.
