Plagued by a combination of disappointing returns, heightened volatility, global trade wars, and (most recently) the COVID-19 crisis and regulatory uncertainty, emerging markets (EM) equities have been decidedly unpopular with many investors for years now. But during that time, the EM investment opportunity set has grown and expanded significantly, making EM equities fertile ground for investors seeking enhanced portfolio diversification and strong performance potential.
We believe differentiated actively managed investment strategies rooted in fundamental research are best positioned to access and capitalize on this attractive, but often-inefficient, asset class. In fact, we think investors who adhere to passive, benchmark-driven EM equity allocations may be missing out on full exploitation of the available opportunity set.
Here are seven reasons why, in our view, EM equity investors should favor active management, in spite of the potentially lower fees associated with passive implementation.
