In this edition of Sturgeon Insights, the team draws on their 15 years of experience investing in frontier markets to summarise six components of their successful investment approach
In this edition of Sturgeon Insights, the team introduce their data-driven approach to impact investing. The central premise of the team’s rigorous impact framework is that investing in innovative, technology-enabled companies that create private-sector jobs can generate long-term sustainable social impact and superior financial returns for investors.
Frontier markets have, for a long time, offered the promise of high returns driven by structural dynamics. However, investor returns have historically failed to match this structurally higher GDP growth, due to the elevated macro volatility associated with these markets.
Sturgeon believes that resilient businesses driven by secular trends can deliver superior returns in-line with high GDP growth irrespective of any economic volatility. To find out more about our approach to investing in frontier markets and current funds, please get in touch.
