Our operations in Asia

Ability to harness outperformance potential of domestic investment management

We believe that domestic managers in emerging markets have the potential to generate superior returns with less volatility than managers based offshore. We believe that many of these markets are under-researched and our local, onshore teams have the advantage of being on the ground, researching and managing investments in these markets day-to-day, helping to turn this local market intelligence into outperformance potential.

Interconnected teams feeding local investment expertise into regional and global strategies

Our local teams in each location in Asia are interconnected and form part of our global network of investment professionals, spanning 17 countries and territories worldwide.
