Standard Life Investments has become the latest big player to enter the emerging market income space, launching a GEM Income fund for analyst Mark Vincent.
The portfolio will hold 60-100 names, targeting a yield equivalent to 115% of the MSCI Emerging Markets index. Vincent, who has been an analyst at SLI since 2000, will employ a bottom-up investment philosophy....
High level data analysis can provide useful flags, but the real challenge is to understand the dynamics and key economic factors to create a much more detailed picture of whether GEMS (or any asset class) offer good value.
