The PARemerging Markets Equities Fund is an actively managed equity fund following the rule-based Quantitative Stock Selection approach. It aims to outperform the benchmark in the long run by exploiting market inefficiencies in the emerging markets through pure stock selection. Relative performance results entirely from stock selection due to the neutral sector, country and currency positioning of the portfolio relative to the benchmark.
Stock selection is broadly based, systematic and rule-based. Under this approach, around 1,500 emerging market stocks are evaluated using dynamically and regionally selected factors from the following six style groups and given a ranking: earnings revisions, price momentum, risk, quality, growth and valuation. The style groups are managed on the basis of a proven economic cycle model, which enables the investors’ cyclically sensitive behavior to be taken into account and leads to an improvement in and smoothing of the performance.
|1. Systematic, rule-based, and diversified selection of stocks in emerging markets. Avoidance of arbitrary or emotional investment decisions.|
|2. Long-term outperformance of the benchmark through pure stock selection. No additional risks compared with the benchmark.|
|3. Dynamic application of relevant evaluation factors and consideration of investors’ cyclically sensitive behavior. The effectiveness of the individual evaluation factors is continuously measured and checked, and the factors are substituted if necessary.|
