| Press Releases

March 6, 2023  (NEW YORK, NY) – J O Hambro, an active investment management company specializing in high conviction, active quities management, today announced the launch of its JOHCM Emerging Markets Opportunities (JOEMX) Microsite.  Aimed towards the financial advisor community, this education tool is complete with a series of videos and monthly insights on the ever-changing emerging markets landscape.  

“The emerging market landscape at the moment is characterized by a strong dollar and tightening US Dollar liquidity, by very high energy prices, and by new geopolitical realities,” says James Syme, Senior Portfolio Manager, JOEMX.  “That is creating some strong opportunities in some commodity expert economies, including the Arab Gulf, but also in markets like Brazil, and Mexico, and Indonesia. It’s creating some significant challenges for some big energy importing more cyclical economies, including Korea and Taiwan.”

The videos include navigating the implications of a strong US dollar, viewing trends of the last 10 years through a country lens, to currently investing in China including both the risks and opportunities.  

The Emerging Markets Opportunities Fund (JOEMX), which just celebrated its 10-year anniversary, is managed by a tenured team of fund managers with proven long-term investment pedigrees and robust investment processes. Each manager has more than two decades of investment experience, and have been working together at JOHCM since 2011.  Senior Fund Managers James Syme and Paul Wimborne and Fund Manager Ada Chan comprise the team.
