Westwood launches emerging markets and global equity mutual funds

RELATED TOPICS​

Westwood Holdings Group has launched three new mutual funds focused on global and emerging market equities.

 
The Westwood Emerging Markets Fund, Westwood Global Equity Fund and Westwood Global Dividend Fund are managed by Westwood’s global and emerging markets team led by Patricia Perez-Coutts and Thomas Pinto Basto.
 
The new mutual funds provide investors access to the team’s experienced approach to uncovering investment opportunities in equity markets throughout the world.
 
"The launch of these new funds is in response to increasing investor demand for broader opportunities provided by global investing as well as exposure to faster growing emerging markets," says Mark Dunbar, Westwood’s senior vice president of marketing. "Patricia, Thomas and their multi-national investment team have worked together for years seeking to identify attractive investments within global and emerging markets. Investors in these mutual funds will benefit from the same investment expertise that the team utilises in serving institutional clients."
 
The funds will be managed using independent, company specific research and an investment process that seeks to invest in securities of sound companies that are believed to be undervalued in the market. Key characteristics that the team looks for in evaluating an investment may include company management aligned with an Economic Value Added (EVA) philosophy, a strong business with core franchise value, above average cash flow generation and consistency of earnings growth.
 
Fund shares may be purchased through investment advisers or directly from the fund.
