GQG Partners Emerging Markets Equity Total Composite and Concentrated Global Equity Composite were awarded 2024 CAMRADATA’s Top Emerging Markets Equity – Growth (USD) and Top Global Growth Large Cap – Growth (USD) asset classes, respectively. 

This marks the second consecutive year that these GQG Partners’ composites have been acknowledged, with the GQG Partners Emerging Markets Equity Total Composite and Concentrated Global Equity Composite being awarded in 2023. 

CAMRADATA’s annual awards recognises top funds using its Independent Quantitative (IQ) score ranking system.1 

Ken Tooze, Director of UK Institutional, said the CAMRADATA awards recognise GQG Partners’ unwavering commitment to our clients. “At GQG Partners, performance is our passion. We strive to be caretakers of investors’ capital and measure our success in terms of our clients’ success. These awards recognise the effectiveness of our investment philosophy, the Forward-Looking Quality approach, and our Research Mosaic. Our commitment is unwavering which is to strive to deliver superior investment results.” 

We believe our Emerging Markets Equity composite links neatly to the compelling growth we see coming from these markets.  We seek to invest in quality companies with attractively priced future growth prospects within emerging markets. The Strategy aims to manage downside risk whilst providing attractive returns to long-term investors over a full market cycle. 

Our Concentrated Global Equity composite focuses primarily on the liquid securities of large-cap issuers in both developed and emerging markets in creating a concentrated portfolio of only approximately 20 securities. We believe this strategy embodies a focused vision with global ambition. GQG believes that concentrated portfolios of high-quality companies with durable earnings, managed in a benchmark-agnostic fashion, will enable them to offer attractive risk-adjusted returns against the market index.

The CAMRADATA Independent Quantitative (IQ) scores is a ranking reflecting five statistical factors measured over a three-year period. Each factor generates a statistic, which is shown as a percentage or a number in the table. To rank products, the percentile ranking of each factor is determined and an overall master score is calculated. This is a simple average of all percentile rankings for each product across all five factors. Investment products that share the same value for a factor are assigned the same percentile rank within that factor. The highest-scoring products appear at the top of the table. For presentational purposes, we apply a ‘unique sort’ to pick out only the best product for each manager.  The five statistical factors that make up the CAMRADATA IQ score are: 

  1. Excess return: A measure of overall added value. The underlying factor is the annualised excess return over the benchmark. 
  2. Information Ratio: A measure of efficiency. The Information Ratio is the return added by the asset manager for each 1% of risk being taken over the benchmark. Therefore the higher the Information Ratio, the more return being added for the 1% of risk being taken. The underlying factor is calculated by taking the excess return and dividing it by the excess risk. 
  3. Wins-Losses: A measure of the bet structure that a manager is taking. The underlying factor is calculated by taking the average positive relative returns away from the average negative relative returns. Investors use this to identify managers with a low frequency of winning but with a high payoff when a product beats the benchmark. Investors want to see that wins (positive returns) are greater than losses (negative returns), even if the wins are infrequent. 
  4. Hit Rate: A measure of consistency. The underlying factor is the percentage of times the manager beats the benchmark. Generally, you should expect a manager with strong consistency of beating the benchmark to have a probability of beating it greater than 50%. 
  5. Drawdown Strength: A measure of downside management. This measures a product’s worst observed 12-month risk-adjusted relative return. It is in effect analysing the worst Information Ratio for each product in any 12-month period during the three years being measured. More credit is given to asset managers who have had positive 12-month risk-adjusted relative returns and who took less risk to achieve it. While during a 12-month period of negative returns, more credit is given to those asset managers who took more risk, showing they were actively managing their products rather than being passive during these times.
