Ashmore launches funds to provide access to investment opportunities in India

Asset manager Ashmore Group plc has launched the Ashmore India Equity Fund focusing on investment opportunities available in the Indian domestic equity market.

The strategy, available as both a Luxembourg-domiciled Ucits SICAV for global asset allocators and a Category 3 alternate investment fund catering to local Indian investors, will be managed by the Group’s local asset management business, Ashmore India.

The strategy provides an opportunity for investors to diversify away from countries such as China while retaining or increasing exposure to potentially attractive emerging market opportunities.

The asset manager highlighted that India is considered a key growth market, supporting long-term appreciation. The fund provider shared that it follows a differentiated approach guided by its intrinsic value framework, focusing on undervalued quality businesses with substantial upside potential. The portfolio is market cap and sector-agnostic, relying on bottom-up analysis to deliver sustained alpha over the market cycle, they added.

Rashi Talwar Bhatia, CEO of Ashmore India, commented: “Active management and stock selection are key to outperforming across Emerging Markets. Our strategy builds on a long-term commitment to India, providing international and domestic investors with access to the highly attractive investment opportunities currently available in the fastest growing economy in the G-20.”

With the likelihood of a third successive government led by the BJP, India provides reassurance amid geopolitical uncertainty elsewhere in the world, he added.
