Overview

The GMO Emerging Markets Trust seeks to generate total return in excess of that of its benchmark, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. 
The Trust is distinguished by an emphasis on both top-down country-sector allocation and value. The Emerging Markets Equity team believes that getting macroeconomic perspectives right in emerging equity markets is most important and that value wins over the long term. The team applies both quantitative and fundamental insights to evaluate countries, sectors, and stocks, using an investment process focused on value and also informed by quality and sentiment inputs.
