Bestinvest view

Smaller companies in emerging economies offer a higher degree of exposure to local markets than their larger counterparts as well as higher growth prospects, but this comes at the expense of greater volatility. They are also less researched than larger companies, creating more opportunities for active fund managers to add value. Manager Matthew Dobbs has been with Schroders for over 30 years and has an outstanding track record investing in Asia, so this fund is clearly one to watch.
