Edinburgh privately owned asset management firm Aubrey Capital Management has announced today that its SVS Aubrey Global Emerging Markets fund is now available for retail investors on the UK investment platform Hargreaves Lansdown.
The Luxembourg domiciled Aubrey Global Emerging Markets Opportunities Fund is already available on retail platforms Bestinvest (powered by Tilney), Chelsea Financial Services, AJ Bell and Interactive Investor. This is an important step for Aubrey as it expands its distribution capabilities to meet demand in the UK.
The platforms adopting Aubrey’s Global Emerging Markets fund are providing further recognition of the fund’s stellar performance. Over the last five years, it has outperformed its benchmark, the MSCI TR Net Emerging Markets USD index, returning 145.1 per cent vs 84.5 per cent, respectively.
Andrew Dalrymple, an Aubrey founding partner and the lead manager of the Global Emerging Markets fund, feels that investors can no longer afford to ignore opportunities in emerging markets. Particularly in countries such as China and India, where companies can provide significant levels of growth, diversification, and often higher returns to their counterparts in further developed countries.
Andrew Dalrymple says: “The wait is finally over for UK investors eagerly awaiting our Global Emerging Markets fund to be added to their preferred investment platforms.”
“We are delighted to see B to C platforms such as Hargreaves Lansdown, Bestinvest, CheIsea, AJ Bell, and Interactive Investor make available our funds to direct investors via their platforms and acknowledge the returns we’ve been able to generate for our clients”, says Dalrymple.
