Changes to management in our Emerging Markets Equity Leaders Fund
Effective 1st April 2023, Punam Sharma of Fidelity International and co-portfolio manager of the Omnis Global Emerging Markets Equity Leaders Fund will be stepping down from this position and begin a new role as Director of Research. There will be no change to the Lead Fund Manager, Amit Goel. Amit has been the main decision maker since taking over the fund in 2021, and that will continue to be the case. In her new role, Punam will continue to work alongside Amit in a research role.
What does this mean for investors?
In short, nothing. There is no material change to the way in which the fund will continue to be managed or in the resources available to Amit Goel. Omnis remains confident that Amit’s approach will continue to deliver against the objectives of the fund. Amit seeks to actively invest in good businesses that can be held for the long term and seeks to exploit the best opportunities available in emerging markets irrespective of location or industry, driven by Fidelity’s global research platform, which Punam will become part of.
