Sam Vecht

Born in the English capital in 1977, Sam Vecht studied International Relations and History at the London School of Economics. He joined BlackRock in 2000, where he is a managing director of long only and long-short funds. Sam concentrates primarily on emerging Europe and other frontier markets, adopting a contrarian investment style with a top-down overview. He does not use cash as a tactical strategy, and derivatives are employed opportunistically. Sam holds the CFA designation and cites football, chess and music as his primary interests.

Objective

It invests at least 70% of its total assets in the equity securities of companies domiciled in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in, emerging European countries. It may also invest in companies domiciled in and around, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in and around, the Mediterranean region.
