Robeco has long been a thought leader in this field, accumulating valuable expertise over many decades. We started investing in emerging markets as early as the 1930s and we developed our first emerging markets stock selection models in the early 2000s. With this publication, we aim to raise awareness about the merits of factor investing in emerging markets and show how investors can profit from these insights in practice.

This is the fourth volume in a series of collected research articles. The earlier volumes focused on low volatility investing, factor investing in equities and quant allocation.

To find out more about this publication, you can contact your local Robeco sales representative/office.
