SLI’s GEM equity fund passes third anniversary


Standard Life Investments is marking the third anniversary of the launch of its Global Emerging Markets (GEM) Equity OEIC, which has provided a return of 28 per cent to investors over the past three years, compared to the benchmark of 20.4 per cent.

The fund’s performance places it in the top quartile of its peer group.

Standard Life Investments’ Asia and GEM Equity teams, which have an industry experience average of 16 years, comprises 11 investment managers, most of whom combine the role of analyst and portfolio manager.

Alistair Way (pictured), Investment Director at Standard Life Investments, and the manager with overall responsibility for the portfolio management of the fund, says: “We have seen dramatic changes across the global emerging markets landscape over the last three years.  From a macro perspective, overall economic growth has slowed somewhat, however our GEM equity strategies are designed to produce repeatable outperformance from our bottom-up stock selection process.

“The last three years have also reinforced the need for a flexible investment outlook and process to take advantage of the opportunities. Our Focus on Change philosophy is very well established across our equity teams at Standard Life Investments, having added value in the long term across many of our products.

“The strong performance of the Standard Life Investments GEM Equity Fund gives us confidence that we have a robust and differentiated investment process, which enables us to find the best investment insights on a global scale and leverage them for the benefit of our investors.”
