UBS Emerging Market Funds

  • Benefiting from above-average return opportunities over time
  • Reducing risk exposure through diversification
  • Investing with experienced professionals

UBS Emerging Market Funds exploit the fact that the price volatility of emerging market investments tends to exceed the volatility of the underlying macroeconomic fundamentals: our fund managers identify investments whose fundamental value should enable the funds to generate above-average returns over the long term. UBS Emerging Markets Funds offer the choice of equity and bond funds.

UBS Emerging Markets Equity Funds invest in the equities of emerging markets worldwide. Their aim is to outperform the benchmark index whilst at the same time controlling risk. This is achieved by combining active stock selection within specific sectors with a top-down risk overlay across emerging market economies. This allows investors to benefit from our macroeconomic and company-specific research. Market capitalisation and liquidity are key criteria here.

Emerging markets bond invest in bonds instruments issued by borrowers in emerging markets. These funds aim to achieve a more attractive return than that of high-quality fixed-income investments whilst systematically controlling risk. Taking advantage of UBS's fundamental research on countries and markets, our fund managers seek to identify bonds that will deliver strong performance.

Investments in offerings from borrowers in the emerging markets offer higher returns but are also exposed to higher risk. As with all our funds, we spread investments among a number of different securities which means that the funds tend to be safer than direct investments in a single underlying security.

Our emerging markets strategies take full advantage of the UBS global research platform and the collective experience of the portfolio construction team. With all of our emerging markets funds our clients are tapping into the global presence and expertise of UBS specialists, thus capturing the best possible opportunities for their portfolios in an exciting but demanding market.
