Principal Investment philosophy
The VanEck Emerging Markets Equity Strategy identifies companies with a structural growth at a reasonable price (“S GARP”). Persistent long-term structural growth opportunities exist in emerging markets. These opportunities are poorly captured by widely used benchmark indices. High growth is frequently overvalued and value stocks often remain cheap. Therefore, we believe achieving strong returns in emerging markets requires an experienced team using a disciplined approach to uncover structural growth at a reasonable price.
