Emerging market equity funds deliver on bullish market forecast promise

RELATED TOPICS​

Camradata’s latest product review of emerging market equities finds optimism about the asset class is well-founded.

 
The institutional investment analyst’s market outlook survey for 2013 (published in January) identified emerging market equities as the class respondents expected to record highest investment returns.
 
Of the 247 products in this asset class on the Camradata Live database, 177 have a three-year track record and 23 have topped returns of ten per cent over that period with the median at 4.8 per cent. Aberdeen Asset Management, at 18.08 per cent, was the stand-out performer.
 
These funds have also grown, going from GBP153.1bn to GBP172.4bn over the last quarter, with the estimated inflow of GBP10.4bn, an increase of 18.1 per cent.
 
Camradata founder and managing director Steve Butler (pictured) says: “Predictions are one thing but results another. This product review offers a clear picture of what has been achieved in this universe.
 
“Positive-sounding sentiment has been translated into healthy returns for investors. Volatility and fear of the less-well-known will always play a part in this asset class but the results here help to shape the right kind of context.”
 
The number of these products on the Camradata Live database meant the universe was split into two sections; funds targeting benchmark +0-3 per cent and funds targeting benchmark +3 per cent.
 
In the first, top performing managers by top five Camradata IQ scores were Investec Asset Management, Lazard Asset Management, AGF Investments, SKAGEN Funds and Amundi, all with three-year returns well above the MSCI Emerging Market benchmark.
 
In the second, RARE Infrastructure, Unigestion SA, HSBC Global Asset Management (UK), Coronation Fund Managers and Thomas White International had the top five Camradata IQ scores.
 
Passive funds are also included in this latest product review.
