McKinley Capital has created a private, open-ended investment fund focused on investing in securities in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia regions.
The MEASA Fund follows McKinley’s typical portfolio construction approach. This approach begins by using market cap and GDP to assign an averaged dynamic weight to each region within the Middle East, Africa and South Asia regions and then continue with dynamic country weights that again combine weighted GDP and market-cap measurements. McKinley then uses its proprietary growth methodology, with its focus on earnings metrics, to select the individual holdings in each country. This actively managed portfolio construction approach combines an entirely unique blend of proprietary systematic processes with a humanistic overlay to take advantage of market inefficiencies.
