“Finding quality companies from Emerging Europe, the Middle East and Africa”

Board Update

Maria Szczesna, an investment manager for the Company, and a member of the Barings EMEA Team, has decided to relinquish her portfolio management responsibilities to return to her home country for family reasons.

Maria will remain with the Company until July 2022, and we do not anticipate any portfolio management disruption, with the remaining co-portfolio managers, Matthias Siller and Adnan El-Araby, who have a combined experience of 36 years, continuing to share responsibilities.

The Board are very grateful for Maria’s involvement in managing the Trust and have every confidence in the team going forward to continue to invest the portfolio in accordance with the mandate.
