Abstract

The growth of ESG funds has been strong globally, but particularly within the emerging markets equity asset class. The founder and a partner of Mobius Capital Partners describe their differentiated approach to ESG investing in emerging markets using a series of case studies. Mobius Capital professes to be an emerging‐markets active ownership fund devoted to improving the ESG performance, while at the same time profiting from misleading ESG ratings and standards, in their portfolio companies. The authors discuss the pitfalls of using off‐the‐shelf ESG ratings and make a strong case for rigorous fundamental research combined with active ownership.
