Manager Comments:

  • BEMO offers a unique strategy for investors seeking to diversify the growth and income potential of emerging markets.
  • Focusing on the under-researched markets of emerging Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the Company seeks out attractively valued, quality companies benefiting from the demographical, social, economic and technological shifts happening across this diverse and fast-changing region.
  • The broader investment focus (from November 2020) has enabled the Company to reduce the portfolio’s exposure to hydrocarbons and access exciting growth opportunities in financial, consumer and technology sectors in particular.
  • Bottom-up stock selection provides the potential to drive returns and create a wider global investment universe in some of the world’s most dynamic markets.
  • The investment case for EMEA remains strong. Underlying dividends were impacted less by COVID-19 than within developed Europe. EMEA countries generally have low debt at government, corporate and household levels and are therefore less correlated with global currency and interest rate movements. Their economies are also predominantly domestically focused and relatively uncorrelated with each other.
