EM boutique announces triple fund launch

EM boutique announces triple fund launch

EM specialist boutique Alquity Investment Management has launched three funds covering a wide array of developing world equity markets.

The London-based group unveiled the trio of strategies as part of furthering growth plans put in motion at the start of the year.

It follows the appointment of former Barings global emerging markets head Roberto Lampl at the end of 2013 and ex-Nevsky Capital partner Mike Sell, who joined in January.

Alquity was established as an African equity specialist in 2010 but the latest Ucits funds cover Latin America, Asia and the Indian subcontinent.

Lampl will oversee the Alquity Latin America mixed asset fund, which will look beyond Brazil to invest in Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Peru.

Meanwhile, Sell, who is head of Asian investments, will run the Alquity Asia fund. This will focus on emerging market nations and invest almost a quarter of its assets in Vietnam and Myanmar.

He will also be responsible for the Alquity Indian Subcontinent Fund, which will focus primarily on ‘New India’ and fast-growing private sector companies, with a remit that covers frontier markets including Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Commenting on the launches, Paul Robinson, CEO of Alquity Investment Management, said: ‘The launch of three new funds marks a step change in the global reach of Alquity’s investment model, building on the track record of our landmark Africa fund.’
