FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GQG Partners LLC announces the launch of the GQG Partners Emerging Markets Equity Fund (GQGPX). Rajiv Jain, Chairman and Chief Investment Officer of GQG Partners, brings in-depth global and emerging market insights to his role as the Fund's Portfolio Manager. He leads a team of seasoned analysts with backgrounds in a variety of fields, including investigative journalism and forensic accounting.
The GQG Partners Emerging Markets Equity Fund invests in high-quality, large-cap companies in emerging market economies. Mr. Jain relies on the qualitative investment process he has developed over the course of two decades, evaluating each company based on financial strength, management quality, and earnings growth sustainability to determine its future growth prospects over a five-year minimum time horizon.
The resulting Fund portfolio, in which a meaningful portion of Mr. Jain's personal net worth is invested along with client assets, attempts to provide attractive long-term, benchmark-agnostic returns over a full market cycle. More information about the Fund is available at: http://gqgpartners.com/products/us-mutual-funds/.
"Just because a company has stable earnings today does not mean it is a high-quality investment over the long term," said Mr. Jain. "Industries and economies evolve over time, so we rely on a team of traditional and non-traditional analysts, including a former investigative journalist, to challenge conventional thinking and short-term projections. Our emphasis on independent thinking and adaptability are vital to positioning the Fund, and our clients, for investment success over the course of a full market cycle."
An Experienced Portfolio Manager at the Helm
Mr. Jain joined GQG Partners in June 2016 after having worked for Vontobel Asset Management since November 1994. He had served as Co-Chief Executive Officer of the firm beginning in July 2014 and Chief Investment Officer and Head of Equities since February 2002. Mr. Jain was the sole Portfolio Manager of Vontobel's International Equities and Emerging Markets Equities products since 2002 and 1997, respectively, and served as lead Co-Portfolio Manager of the Global Equities product beginning in 2002 until his departure in March 2016.
Under Mr. Jain's leadership, Vontobel Asset Management grew from less than $400 million in assets under management in 2002 to nearly $50 billion in assets under management in 2016. Morningstar named Mr. Jain its International Stock Fund Manager of the Year in 2012.
The GQG Partners Emerging Markets Equity Fund is the second mutual fund Mr. Jain is now managing since the firm's inception. In December 2016, the Goldman Sachs GQG Partners International Opportunities Fund (GSIHX) launched, which features GQG Partners as the sub-adviser.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. The GQG Partners Emerging Markets Equity Fund invests in foreign securities, which will involve greater volatility and political, economic, and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. It also invests in emerging markets, which involve unique risks, such as exposure to economies less diverse and mature than the U.S. or other more established foreign markets. Economic and political instability may cause larger price changes in emerging markets securities than other foreign securities. The Fund is non-diversified.
The Goldman Sachs GQG Partners International Opportunities Fund invests primarily in equity investments in companies that are located outside the U.S. Foreign and emerging markets investments may be more volatile and less liquid than investments in U.S. securities and are subject to the risks of currency fluctuations and adverse economic or political developments. The Fund may invest heavily in investments in particular countries or regions and may be subject to greater losses than if it were less focused in a particular country or region. The Fund's investments in other investment companies (including ETFs) subject it to additional expenses. Different investment styles (e.g., "growth," "value" or "quantitative") tend to shift in and out of favor, and at times the Fund may underperform other funds that invest in similar asset classes. The Fund's equity investments are subject to market risk, which means that the value of the securities in which it invests may go up or down in response to the prospects of individual companies, particular sectors and/or general economic conditions. The securities of mid- and small-capitalization companies involve greater risks than those associated with larger, more established companies and may be subject to more abrupt or erratic price movements. The Fund is "non-diversified" and may invest more of its assets in fewer issuers than "diversified" funds. Accordingly, the Fund may be more susceptible to adverse developments affecting any single issuer held in its portfolio and to greater losses resulting from these developments.
