Mobius Capital Partners will target a fundraising in excess of £200m for its newly-launched investment trust as it prepares for listing on 1 October.
Mobius added: "Carlos, Greg and I founded Mobius Capital Partners because we fundamentally believe the future of active investment is creating value through partnership and engagement.
"Emerging and frontier market companies provide a unique opportunity to enhance ESG performance.
"We will look to work with these firms to improve corporate governance, set out a broader ESG pathway and act as a catalyst for wider operational and financial improvements.
"We are delighted to make our innovative approach accessible to both institutional and retail investors via a London listed investment trust.
"Over my 30-year investment career, I have learned that emerging markets swing between irrational exuberance and excessive pessimism.
"What matters most is a deep understanding of the fundamentals. The current market correction opens up many exciting opportunities."
The latest date for applications is 25 September and the results of the issue will be published on 26 September.
Admission and dealings in shares will commence on 1 October.
Mobius Capital Partners was launched by the trio in May. It has already stated it will launch an emerging markets ESG SICAV fund which will be a best ideas product capped at $1bn.
As well as the founding trio, the firm has also hired Kunal Desai, former head of Indian equities at Neptune, and investment analysts Fergus Argyle from Somerset Capital Management and Usman Ali from Swedish emerging market specialist East Capital.
