Credit Suisse has partnered with Carmignac to launch a multi-asset emerging markets fund, the companies have announced. 

Combining equity and debt investments, the fund will gather emerging market premium while also controlling the risks.

The Swiss bank highlighted that emerging markets are currently contributing 60% of global economic growth and will be key players in the financial markets for 2018.

Credit Suisse’s global CIO, Michael Strobaek, said that ‘EM winners’ is one of the investment themes that the firm is following closely in 2018.

Credit Suisse’s investment solutions team and Carmignac’s portfolio management team will co-manage the strategy, which will be made available to both institutional and retail investors.
