GCA EM Sustainable Growth Fund


We invest in companies across emerging markets that embrace robust
environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards, which position
them to achieve strong and sustainable growth and profitability
over the long term.

We believe that emerging and frontier markets will be the engines of global growth in the next century. At the same time, they face considerable challenges related to climate change, urbanization, pollution, disease, governance, infrastructure deficits and institutional capacity.
We focus on material ESG factors across multiple sectors:

FINANCIAL
INCLUSION

Banking
Insurance
FinTech

COMMUNICATION &
EDUCATION

Telecom
Internet
Schools
Technology

We differentiate ourselves by fully integrating comprehensive sustainability analysis into our proven, repeatable investment process. By focusing on material ESG factors and combining rigorous bottom-up fundamental analysis with macroeconomic factors, we identify drivers of growth and profitability while mitigating risk. This approach has been the key to our ability to generate significant and high quality outperformance throughout the life of our fund.

Our investment universe includes 60 markets and a wide range of sectors. We focus on opportunities with sustainable, domestically driven growth in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, while avoiding sensitive sectors such as coal, oil, alcohol, tobacco, and gaming with significant exogenous and regulatory risk.

As responsible investors, owning shares is only one of many steps in building long-term relationships with our portfolio companies. We believe in active ownership and engaging constructively with management and other stakeholders to advocate for governance and business practices that drive value creation.
