Emerging and frontier market equities

Danske Bank Asset Management’s approach to emerging and frontier markets reflects our belief that active asset management requires in-depth local knowledge in order to stock-pick the best investments.

Emerging and Frontier Markets Small and Mid Cap is a multi manager strategy consisting of 10 investment managers with local knowledge who track investment opportunities in their respective emerging and frontier markets.

While the regional and country allocation is top-down managed by the lead portfolio manager of the strategy, local investments in each market are via bottom-up stockpicking by the 10 local investment managers, who focus on small and mid cap stocks in concentrated best idea portfolios. The overall portfolio consists of 170-200 holdings divided among the investment managers.

Our core belief is that small and mid size companies are well positioned to capture domestically-driven growth in emerging and frontier markets. Our approach exploits bottom-up opportunities across industries and market capitalisations and is based on a deep understanding of local culture and market drivers.
