Active Equities

Over the past 15 years, emerging market (EM) equities have experienced strong performance. And through a combination of demographic advantages, local market trends and increased index diversification, they may be poised to continue performing well.


While much of the developed world contends with aging societies, emerging markets tend to be younger. Many are home to growing working-age populations, which bodes well for their labor pools and consumer spending. Additionally, increasing middle class wealth and the pace of urbanization in these areas should power global spending for years to come.

Our ESG approach to equity investing

We believe that ESG factors are financially material and can impact a company’s performance – either positively or negatively. Understanding ESG risks and opportunities, alongside other financial metrics, is therefore an intrinsic part of our research process.


We actively engage with the companies in which we invest. We combine information from these meetings with the insights of our investment managers, ESG equity analysts and central ESG investment team. This comprehensive approach means we can build a richer, more holistic view of each company. It also means we can consistently evaluate one company against another.


This approach is all part of our responsible stewardship of our clients’ assets – helping us mitigate risks, unlock opportunities and enhance long-term returns.
