Acadian launches emerging market debt fund


Acadian Asset Management LLC (Acadian) has launched the Acadian Emerging Markets Debt Fund, a series of the Advisor’s Inner Circle Fund Series Trust trading under the ticker symbol AEMDX.

Acadian, a firm specialising in active global and international investment strategies, has been investing in emerging markets for almost 20 years. In addition to the Emerging Markets Debt Fund, Acadian offers an Emerging Markets Equity Portfolio (AEMGX) which it has been managing since June 1993. Assets under management for AEMGX as of December 31, 2010 were USD946 million.

Acadian said it believes the growing convergence between emerging and developed countries along several key metrics should offer long-term benefits to investors in emerging market debt. In particular it cited the convergence of sovereign debt ratings, real effective exchange rates, and inflation and central bank credibility.

The Acadian Emerging Markets Debt Fund will be managed by John Peta, CFA, and L Bryan Carter, CFA, who joined the firm in April, 2007, bringing with them a solid track record in emerging market debt, both dollar-denominated and local currency. Acadian’s approach combines fundamental analysis, focusing on the determinants of economic growth, with quantitative research and is philosophically aligned with the firm’s long tradition of applying fundamental concepts in a structured and disciplined manner.
