The active emerging
market specialist.


Somerset Capital Management was founded in 2007 as a specialist Global Emerging Markets investment management firm.

Over time the firm has grown to $7+bn under management with more than 40 members of staff including 19 investment managers and analysts based in London and Singapore. Somerset Capital is structured as an employee-owned partnership. We believe in co-investment, we cap our funds and we prefer to focus on performance above asset gathering.

At the core of Somerset’s philosophy lies a belief in transparency. We are open about our ownership structure and our portfolios. Uniquely, we invite key clients to join an advisory board which meets annually, encouraging an effective alignment of interest between the partnership and our investors.



*Notice relating to Jacob Rees-Mogg’s appointment to member of the Cabinet. Jacob was one of the co-founders of Somerset Capital Management when it was established in 2007. While he stepped back from day to day work at Somerset when he became a Member of Parliament in 2010, he has remained an advisor to the firm, supporting its growth to become one of the UK’s leading emerging market asset management boutiques. We wish him well as he now steps down immediately from our Executive Committee and all other committees.
