Emerging markets debt

Focused on driving returns through consistent, diversified alpha sources

We believe emerging markets debt is an inefficient asset class. Therefore, a disciplined investment process focused on downside risk management that efficiently allocates active risk can deliver long-term outperformance through consistent, diversified sources of alpha.

Investing in emerging markets debt is a core competency of our organization. We invested in our first non-U.S. security in the 1970s and formed a dedicated emerging markets debt team in 1997. Today, we are one of the largest managers of emerging markets debt1 and manage more than $12 billion in assets under management.2
