The Fund

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of an investment and the income generated from it can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may get back less than you originally invested.

Our Investment Process

The fund managers believe the key to generating outperformance is through high conviction, long-term, research-led company selection.
The Liontrust Emerging Markets Fund focuses on Emerging Leaders – companies well positioned to prosper in a world of rapid change. Importantly, given many disruptive products and business models have arisen in developed markets, their introduction and adoption rates across emerging markets are driving considerable growth at a consumer and commercial level.
Therefore, Emerging Leaders alone have the resources and capabilities to survive and prosper given the huge levels of disruption seen across the whole economy.

A common feature is their ability to create value for customers (either via a lower price and/or higher quality product and management that are focused on driving continuous improvement) and capture value for itself and its shareholders via a sustaining moat (such as unique assets, efficient scale, technology leadership, R&D investment and customer switching costs).

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of an investment and the income generated from it can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may get back less than you originally invested.

Key Risks 

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of an investment and the income generated from it can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may get back less than you originally invested. The issue of units/shares in Liontrust Funds may be subject to an initial charge, which will have an impact on the realisable value of the investment, particularly in the short term. Investments should always be considered as long term.

 

Investment in the Fund involves foreign currencies and may be subject to fluctuations in value due to movements in exchange rates. The Fund may invest in emerging markets/soft currencies or in financial derivative instruments, both of which may have the effect of increasing volatility.
