Who we are
Trinetra is a boutique Emerging Markets fund manager with a highly distinctive approach to research.
We believe that consumers, not consultants or companies, dictate consumptions trends.
Our big difference is that we conduct ethnographic studies, what we call Immersions. These involve qualitative research that centres around in-depth discussions with Emerging Market consumers in their homes.
We study their lives, their cultures and their values. We seek to understand the social and economic challenges that they face, and thereby the trends that are set to emerge.
Adhering to a rigorous process of stock selection and portfolio construction, we invest in companies that we believe are best positioned to solve consumers' challenges and to capture emerging trends.
We aim to deliver strong, risk adjusted returns by anticipating EM social and environmental trends through ethnographic research.
We seek to identify companies that can capture those trends, and have sustainable business models with quantifiable risks.
We back managements whose interests are aligned with all stakeholders, and who have shown discipline in managing their cashflows and balance sheets.
