Emerging Markets Fund
Long-term capital appreciation via emerging market and developing region country issuers; EMF objectives are not guaranteed.
Emerging Markets FundGlazier Emerging Market Fund(s) (GEMF) focuses on managing the inherent risks associated with emerging market regions, sectors, and asset classes. We provide strong risk-adjusted returns by enabling self-funded companies that generate strong free cash flow. Most importantly, by doing so, we empower companies that are globally implicated yet not dependent on capital markets. While we make our benchmarks and design our own models, we still use widely recognized indexes as a baseline for achievement.
GEMF was founded in the midst of a global financial crisis when liquidity was at its lowest in decades. In 2016, the world saw the economic despair after Brexit, the fall of Deutsche Bank, southern European Bank bailouts, prospectus for a Dodd Frank rework, the decline of Greece, as well as the crippling effects of Federal Reserve’s PIIGS QE to further depreciate global currencies. Despite all of this, Glazier was founded to create new economic opportunities and models for the long-term development of emerging markets by managing risk through technology.
Our GEMF portfolios reflect batches of enterprising businesses and initiatives that are tied to the growth of emerging markets asset classes aligned with our niche securities trading operations. GEMF works on a firm-by-firm basis to ensure that we are mitigating risk in sourcing for companies that can either self-fund or be perpetuated by Glazier’s internal development assets. In doing so, we build funds and portfolios that consist of companies who will be less affected by market crises and political economic volatility.
Due to the inherent risks of emerging markets as well as the volatility of asset classes, we have developed a hands-on approach to investment and asset management through project management and statistical modeling of our portfolio companies. Glazier has a pulse on each economy and sway towards those with direct foreign investment without a dependency on stock volatility or flow of bonds that seek to be and stay independently sustainable and financially sound.
The Glazier team is uniquely formed by both finance and non-financial team members so that each portfolio is scrupulously analyzed by a diverse set of eyes and minds. We implement a bottom up approach to investment management in order to exploit overlooked market opportunities through companies within the context of a region, country, market, or sector. We invest and diversify with conviction backed by data-driven insights and technological risk management.
