Highlights

  • Emerging markets are rife with investment opportunities that will participate in a wave of rapid economic development, digitalization, and rising consumer purchasing power.
  • A passive investment approach to emerging markets has numerous shortcomings. The indices tend to be dominated by lackluster businesses–such as bureaucratic, state-owned enterprises (“SOEs”) – and are likely to be overweight value-oriented, cyclical sectors that will slowly decline in relevance as emerging economies develop.
  • With an active, long-term investment approach focused on companies with improving competitive advantages and superior corporate cultures, WCM’s Emerging Markets portfolio offers investors partnerships with tomorrow’s leading companies that stand to benefit from a multi-decade tailwind of robust growth.

All investing involves risk, including the risk of loss. Investment risk exists with equity, fixed income, and alternative investments. There is no assurance that any investment will meet its performance objectives or that losses will be avoided.

Foreign and emerging market securities may be subject to greater political, economic, environmental, credit, currency and information risks. Foreign securities may be subject to higher volatility than US securities, due to varying degrees of regulation and limited liquidity. These risks are magnified in emerging markets.
