Putnam's Emerging Markets Equity strategy seeks to outperform the MSCI Emerging Markets Index over time through a disciplined process that blends fundamental and quantitative bottom-up and macro analysis with deep corporate governance insights to capture price inefficiencies across the cap spectrum.
- Mispriced securities, driven by lack of coverage and misunderstanding of growth drivers, represent the greatest growth opportunities in these markets, especially in private sector small- to mid-cap stocks
- A deep understanding of corporate and political governance can help avoid risk
- A process that blends multiple sources of alpha can provide a more consistent view of opportunities in the emerging markets
- A sophisticated risk management framework can help ensure allocation to areas of greatest conviction
