Independence is "in our DNA”

    uncorrelated with market indices.
  • Our fund managers
    undertake c. 1.500 visits each year to evaluate, first hand, investment decisions.
  • We have been pioneers in emerging markets since 1989.


  • We go wherever the real growth opportunities lie. This means getting off the beaten track.
  • A long-term investment strategy.
  • Our corporate culture, Fund’s track-record and client-servicing have been rewarded over the years.

Team spirit
