Among the funds included in the firm's SICAV range are: Ashmore SICAV Emerging Markets Local Currency Bond , Ashmore SICAV Emerging Markets Debt , Ashmore SICAV Emerging Markets Total Return and Ashmore SICAV Emerging Markets Equity Select .
A total of 470 fund companies from 20 countries have elected to distribute their mutual funds through MFEX platforms with the UK-based emerging market specialist, who runs $68 billion in assets, being the latest addition to its clientele list.
