London, 25 January 2018

The Milltrust team credits the multi-specialist approach, low cost structure and outperformance to peers for the investor inflows.

Asset manager Milltrust International has seen its total assets in Emerging Markets mandates rise two-fold as investor sentiment for the asset class continues to rebound.  The London and Singapore-based firm, which has attracted a number of institutional pension fund investors since its launch in 2011, has prioritised lowering costs and improving transparency for their investment products.

“We have addressed the cost issue that investors often use as an excuse not to buy an actively-managed fund,” says a firm spokesperson. “The net result is that the base cost to an investor in our Global Emerging Markets Fund is the same or lower than the cost of holding a passive fund elsewhere.”

The core underlying investments of Milltrust’s Global Emerging Markets Fund, an ICAV-regulated open-ended fund, primarily comprise of allocations to specialist country and regional EM investment strategies through the Milltrust Emerging Markets Managed Accounts (“EMMA”) UCITS platform.  The platform structure is designed to address important investor concerns regarding the lack of transparency often associated with multi-manager products. The underlying strategies are run by locally-based investment teams who Milltrust believe have an important informational edge in their respective markets.

The London-based Milltrust team is responsible for allocating between the different regional teams. They use quantitative modelling techniques and qualitative analysis to establish the geographical allocations for the fund.

“Looking ahead, we expect our asset growth, which has also been underpinned by the strong performance of our strategies, to continue to accelerate over the coming quarters as investors increase their still largely underweight positions in Emerging Markets,” adds the firm spokesperson.
