Rajiv Jain, Portfolio Manager of GQG Partners LLC, Possesses 20+ Years of Experience
FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GQG Partners LLC announces the launch of the GQG Partners Emerging Markets Equity Fund (GGQEMAU:ID), a sub-fund of GQG Global UCITS ICAV. Rajiv Jain, Chairman and Chief Investment Officer of GQG Partners, brings more than 20 years of in-depth global and emerging market investing experience to his role as the Fund's Portfolio Manager.
The GQG Partners Emerging Markets Equity Fund seeks to deliver attractive, benchmark-agnostic returns over the course of a full market cycle by investing in high-quality, large-cap companies in emerging markets. More information about the Fund is available at: http://gqgpartners.com/products/ucits-funds/.
"Our differentiated approach to investment selection seeks a long-term informational edge," said Mr. Jain. "At a time of intense geopolitical uncertainty, we are glad to offer European investors access to a seasoned strategy."
Mr. Jain and his team of seasoned analysts utilize a proprietary, bottom-up research process to create a portfolio of companies that they believe have long-term growth prospects that aren't strongly correlated to macroeconomic conditions. Mr. Jain and his team members attempt to determine the true value of the companies they consider by analyzing earnings growth, financial strength, management quality, and other factors over a five-year minimum time horizon. They also look to mitigate company risk and overall portfolio risk by researching a company's long-term capability to serve its end consumers.
Mr. Jain and his associates bring diverse perspectives to the investment selection process, having accumulated many years of combined experience in investment management as well as non-traditional fields such as investigative journalism and forensic accounting.
"We rely on an investment approach rooted in adaptability and independent thought to enable investors to navigate inflection points over the long term," said Mr. Jain. "As a client-aligned institution, we have a vested interest in challenging short-term projections and conventional thinking."
An Experienced Portfolio Manager at the Helm
Mr. Jain joined GQG Partners in June 2016 after having worked for Vontobel Asset Management since November 1994. Under Mr. Jain's leadership, Vontobel Asset Management grew from less than $400 million in assets under management in 2002 to nearly $50 billion in assets under management in 2016.
He served as Co-Chief Executive Officer of Vontobel beginning in July 2014, and Chief Investment Officer and Head of Equities since February 2002. Mr. Jain was the sole Portfolio Manager of Vontobel's International Equities and Emerging Markets Equities products since 2002 and 1997, respectively, and served as lead Co-Portfolio Manager of the Global Equities product beginning in 2002 until his departure in March 2016.
