Landscape

The Wasatch Emerging Markets Small Cap Portfolio is focused on high quality companies in emerging markets.

About This Portfolio

Inception:10/1/2007
Net Assets:$2,790.8 (million) as of 03/31/14
Account Minimum:$10 million
Objective:

The Emerging Markets Small Cap Portfolio seeks to provide long-term growth of capital. It invests primarily in the equity securities of small companies in emerging markets. In this way, it takes advantage of the dynamic growth potential of smaller, less discovered companies in budding economies.

Strategy:

This Portfolio invests primarily in small companies with market capitalizations of less than $3 billion at the time of purchase. Holdings will generally span broadly across countries and sectors. As one of few emerging market portfolios focused on small companies, this Portfolio allows investors to find undiscovered quality companies in rapidly growing markets. Emerging Markets Small Cap seeks companies with excellent earnings growth and may also capture P/E expansion as their success is more broadly recognized.

Compared to Other Wasatch Portfolios:
This Portfolio invests in larger companies than International Micro Cap and is more concentrated in emerging markets.
Mutual Fund:Wasatch Emerging Markets Small Cap Fund (WAEMX)
