Overview

The GMO Emerging Domestic Opportunities Equity Fund's investment objective is total return.

The Emerging Markets Equity team invests in companies that we believe will benefit most from the rising demand for goods and services in emerging markets. The Fund employs a fundamental investment approach that combines top-down country and sector allocation with bottom-up security selection. The process focuses on investing in higher quality companies at a reasonable price and places an emphasis on downside protection through multi-layered risk control and dynamic allocation.
