Emso's team combines decades of experience with a research-driven investment culture, analyzing the political, legal, economic, and technical aspects of each investment to build portfolios for Emso's investors.
The team supplements frequent travel to investment markets with a global network, which has been developed over many decades. Emso's research and risk management are aimed at identifying opportunities, scrutinizing them, and checking and re-checking their investment premise.
Emso is employee-owned with offices in London and New York and incorporates a technology driven operations platform directed at delivering high quality investment solutions for its global and predominantly institutional investor base.
Emso was created in 2000 by a highly specialized team with deep knowledge gained in the formative years of emerging markets. The investment team viewed emerging markets as a diversified set of opportunities - not a single asset class - that required a disciplined research approach.
The members of Emso's senior investment team average over 20 years of experience investing in emerging markets. The team has built a global network of policy specialists to gain deep insight in the drivers for each opportunity.
With over 80 experienced professionals in London and New York, Emso is a diversified fixed income asset manager in emerging markets. The team manages multiple strategies, including absolute return, liquid alternatives, alternative long only, credit opportunities, and customized strategies.
We value transparency and want our investors to have insight into our investment process, know what our portfolios invest in, and stay informed about the rationale behind our positions.
We invest heavily in operations and technology solutions to provide accurate and, where possible, automated settlement across our portfolios.
We are a signatory to the UN PRI and integrate Environmental, Social and Governance factors into our investment analysis. Emso employees regularly contribute to AIMA sound practice guides and other industry initiatives.
Emso and many of our employees are active supporters of education, healthcare, and wildlife projects across Africa and other emerging markets, supporting, among others, the Tusk Trust.
