City of London Investment Group

Background

City of London Investment Group (CoL) is a fund manager whose main focus (over 90% of assets) is investing in emerging markets via closed end funds. Its process starts with macro-economic analysis to assess attractive economies, then it applies detailed manager analysis and valuation criteria to stock selection. Over the last few years it has added other strategies, including using the same process for Developed and Frontier markets, and is starting to diversify its asset base. Clients are almost entirely institutional, with over 90% based in the US.
