a fresh approach
to emerging markets

The American Beacon Earnest Partners Emerging Markets Equity Fund looks at emerging markets companies differently from other funds in this category:

  • The fundamental, bottom-up approach relies on proprietary stock screen (Return Pattern Recognition®) and independent research.
  • A team approach to issue selection based on practical, real-world industry experience.
  • The sub-advisor seeks to lessen the likelihood of significantly underperforming the benchmark by using a risk control technique that focuses on downside deviation.
