BNP AM

The sustainable investor for a changing world

Emerging market equity strategy

Key features

A global all-cap equity portfolio with ESG assessment at every step of the investment process 

A focus on high-quality emerging market companies with sustainable growth potential

An experienced team with access to 13 local emerging market investment centres

Investment philosophy 

Our investment philosophy is rooted in the belief that high-quality companies bought at a compelling price generate superior returns over the long term. Our definition of quality includes a superior business model, healthy financials, sufficient runway for growth and a management team we know, like and trust. We focus on three categories of growth, each with distinct return characteristics: growth compounders, mispriced growth and disruptive growth.

We believe ESG integration, a natural extension of a quality focus, enhances both risk control and opportunity capture.

Investment process

Our Emerging Market Equity strategy follows a disciplined bottom-up process:

  • Select and monitor a focus list of stocks that satisfy our criteria for quality
  • Conduct in-depth fundamental research and risk-reward analysis of said stocks
  • Construct a diversified portfolio
  • Continuously monitor holdings and sell discipline/decisions

Team and resources

Our Global Emerging Market Equity team is based in Boston. Quang Nguyen, who has more than 21 years of industry experience, leads the team.

The team consists of portfolio managers and research analysts with expertise across different sectors and countries. They benefit from access to 13 local emerging market investment centres, as well as our global trading and risk management platform, Sustainability Centre, Quantitative Research Group and Macro Research team.
