Emerging Global Advisors (EGA) is an asset management company specializing in truer exposures to emerging market assets. Our targeted approach makes it possible for investors to use similar investment strategies in emerging markets as they do in developed markets.
EGShares, our exchange traded fund (ETF) offering, enables investors to allocate not merely to, but also within emerging markets through sector, thematic, and core holding ETFs. These portfolio construction tools allow more accurate targeting of emerging market opportunities.
Our research develops the investment intelligence necessary for us to create and often be first-to-market with tools that enable investment points of view to be turned into specific emerging markets portfolio holdings. We focus on both well known themes and those that are developing. This thought process combined with traditional analytics underpins the development of our product offering.
In our view, broad benchmarks are often rearward looking, potentially rendering them less adequate to the task of dealing with emerging market maturation. Consequently, the emerging markets exposures that investors achieve versus those they desire, may not be aligned. Our process focuses on creating both core positions and access to emerging market themes, sectors and dividends, allowing more opportunity for investors to selectively express an investment point of view.
We are careful to utilize indices that contain only emerging markets based companies, excluding any holdings from markets defined by the International Monetary Fund as developed. Our process also identifies indices that we believe will offer long-term utility, taking into account factors such as regulatory limits on foreign ownership.
Please review our ETF offerings to find ways to more precisely express your investment point of view in emerging markets.
