PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rothko Investment Strategies (“Rothko”), a division of Mondrian Investment Partners Limited, a leading global, value-oriented investment manager, has launched its first equity mutual fund, the Rothko Emerging Markets Equity Fund (RKEMX).

The Fund is unique in its application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to fundamentally driven value investing across non-U.S. equity markets.

“Artificial Intelligence may be among the latest buzzwords in finance—but applying it to investment decision making can add high alpha or excess return relative to benchmarks within a more stable modelling framework,” said Daniel Philps, Head of Rothko Investment Strategies.

“Rothko’s AI investment strategy is very different from traditional quant investors which almost universally rely on ‘factors’ or data-driven market signals in order to select stocks,” said Mr. Philps. “We believe AI offers another way to drive fundamental investing but in an objective way.”

Rothko’s active, defensive, value-oriented investment process seeks to learn and use fundamental expert investment rationales. At the same time, the investment process seeks to avoid the behavioral biases of human stock selectors.

The Fund’s experienced investment team seeks long-term capital growth by investing primarily in equity securities of emerging markets countries.
