Investors looking for long-term capital growth from direct or indirect investment in emerging markets could benefit from Aberdeen's Emerging Markets fund, The Share Centre has claimed.
Commenting, Andy Parsons, team manager at The Share Centre said: "Emerging markets have become increasingly popular with investors over recent years, given their strong fundamentals, positive reform, advantageous demographics, wealth in resources and sound banking systems."
The Aberdeen Emerging Markets fund invests in approximately 50 to 60 stocks, and provides access to more than just the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) economies.
The emerging markets fund is managed on a 'team' basis, as opposed to having a single manager at the helm, and the team applies a bottom up approach with an emphasis on absolute returns rather than the benchmark.
Speaking of the fund's performance, Mr Parsons said: "The fund has a strong track record, having returned 71.41 per cent over a three year cumulative period to 9 April 2010, and 209.16 per cent over a five year cumulative period. Year-to-date the fund has returned 14 per cent, ranking it not only first quartile in all three of these periods, but either number one or number two in the sector."
The Aberdeen Emerging Markets fund has an annual charge of 1.75 per cent, and an initial charge of 4.25 per cent, but the fund is available through the Fair Investment Funds Service with a 100 per cent discount on the standard initial charge.
