Ashutosh Sinha

Born in India in 1966, Ashutosh Sinha studied electrical engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology in Kanpur before beginning his career as a consultant at Citicorp Overseas Software. Sinha spent 3 years at Citicorp then completed an MBA at the Indian Institute of Management before joining SBI Fund Management as a portfolio manager in 1993. He made the switch to Morgan Stanley Investment Management in 1995 and is presently head of investments for Asia ex-Japan. From his Singapore base Sinha looks after a number of funds including the Morgan Stanley Asian Equity fund. He has an active stock selection style looking for core with a growth bias based on in-depth, fundamental, bottom up security selection and top-down country analysis.


The Emerging Leaders Equity Fund’s investment objective is to seek long term capital appreciation, measured in US Dollars, through investment primarily in a concentrated portfolio of equity securities in emerging and frontier countries. As markets in other countries develop, the Fund expects to expand and further diversify the emerging and frontier markets in which it invests. The Fund may invest in the equity securities of companies organised and located in countries other than an emerging or frontier market where the value of the company's securities will reflect principally conditions in an emerging or frontier country.
