About this talk

Despite the current global environment of extreme market volatility amid numerous geopolitical and macroeconomic issues, emerging markets remain intriguing for institutional investors looking to add a compelling and low-correlation component to their portfolio. Join our webinar on March 10, when Arup Datta, Head of Global Quantitative Equity Team at Mackenzie Investments, will share his expert insights, from the perspective of a disciplined, risk-aware quantitative investor, on emerging market trends. Arup Datta has more than 27 years of experience in quant equity investing, with significant exposure to emerging markets. While there are additional layers of complexity to consider when investing in emerging markets, he can help investors navigate this challenging space to enhance their potential for generating alpha. In this webinar, Arup Datta will: • Compare quant and fundamental approaches to emerging market investing and why he favours a quant approach to uncover specific opportunities in emerging markets. • Highlight his team’s approach to quant investing, with its focus on alpha over asset gathering, and how they are well-positioned to thrive in today’s emerging markets. • Shed light on why it’s particularly attractive to invest in emerging markets now, as they remain a relatively overlooked or misunderstood category by many institutional investors.
