Numeric Emerging Markets Core

As emerging markets have developed over the last 20 years, we believe that a transition from a “country picker” to “stock picker” approach is appropriate given the narrowing dispersion of country returns throughout the regions.

Our Emerging Markets Core Strategy applies Man Numeric’s tried and tested systematic investing principles, adapted for the idiosyncrasies of emerging markets. The strategy aims to deliver alpha via quantitative, bottom-up stock selection.


  • Diversified portfolio utilizing complementary quantitative models
  • Portfolio construction and risk management aim to maximize alpha exposure while minimizing economic risk exposures
  • Offers broad diversification of stock-specific risk, yet high active share
  • Daily portfolio rebalance overseen by experienced portfolio management team
  • Research team focused on model enhancements

One should carefully consider the risks associated with investing, whether the strategy suits your investment requirements and whether you have sufficient resources to bear any losses which may result from an investment:

  • Market Risk - The Strategy is subject to normal market fluctuations and the risks associated with investing in international securities markets and therefore the value of your investment and the income from it may rise as well as fall and you may not get back the amount originally invested.

  • Counterparty Risk - The Strategy will be exposed to credit risk on counterparties with which it trades in relation to on-exchange traded instruments such as futures and options and where applicable, ‘over-the- counter’("OTC","non-exchange") transactions. OTC instruments may also be less liquid and are not afforded the same protections that may apply to participants trading instruments on an organised exchange.

  • Currency Risk - The value of investments designated in another currency may rise and fall due to exchange rate fluctuations. Adverse movements in currency exchange rates may result in a decrease in return and a loss of capital. It may not be possible or practicable to successfully hedge against the currency risk exposure in all circumstances.

  • Liquidity Risk - The Strategy may make investments or hold trading positions in markets that are volatile and which may become illiquid. Timely and cost efficient sale of trading positions can be impaired by decreased trading volume and/or increased price volatility.

  • Financial Derivatives - The Strategy may invest in financial derivative instruments ("FDI") (instruments whose prices are dependent on one or more underlying asset) typically for hedging purposes. The use of FDI involves additional risks such as high sensitivity to price movements of the asset on which it is based. The use of FDI may multiply the gains or losses.

  • Emerging Markets - The Strategy may invest a significant proportion of its assets in securities with exposure to emerging markets which involve additional risks relating to matters such as the illiquidity of securities and the potentially volatile nature of markets not typically associated with investing in other more established economies or markets.

  • Model and Data Risk - The Investment Manager relies on quantitative trading models and data supplied by third parties. If models or data prove to be incorrect or incomplete, the Strategy may be exposed to potential losses. Models can be affected by unforeseen market disruptions and/or government or regulatory intervention, leading to potential losses.
