Company Overview

Ashmore Group plc is a specialist active, value-oriented emerging markets asset manager, with a leading position in emerging markets fixed income investment management within global US dollar debt; local currencies and local currency debt; special situations/distressed debt; and has a growing participation in equities. The Company currently focuses on four emerging markets investment themes - Global US Dollar, Global Local Currency, Special Situations/Distressed Debt and Equities - and has a track record of delivering strong, long-term investment performance. Across these diversified investment strategies, as at 30 June 2006, members of the Group managed 13 Ashmore sponsored funds (including open-ended and closed-ended funds), 12 segregated accounts, nine white label funds (funds distributed under another firm's brand) and two structured products ('the Funds'). Ashmore currently has AuM of over US$21 billion. Headquartered in London, with offices in New York and Hong Kong, the Company currently employs 52 staff, including 17 investment professionals and a seven person legal team. The business that is now branded 'Ashmore' was originally formed as a division of ANZ Group and was subsequently bought out by senior executives in early 1999. The Funds managed by Ashmore have a growing investor base of over 1,800 investors across the investment themes, predominantly institutional, with efficient distribution through the Company's own sales force and over 30 distribution agreements and other investment arrangements in place. As at 30 June 2006, approximately 89% of these investors were institutions, such as corporates, financial institutions, government agencies, foundations, pension plans and funds of funds, and the remaining 11% consisted primarily of high net worth individuals. As at 30 June 2006, the top 20 investors in Funds accounted for 60% of Fund AuM, and the top five investors accounted for 35% of Fund AuM.
