City of London Investment Group is a highly successful investment manager, with a range of funds investing in emerging markets; founded in 1991 by Barry Oliff. Initially it only managed closed-end funds which are not liable to be subject to pressures to sell investments when there is a lack of liquidity, but it now also manages three UCITS; one covers Emerging Markets through a portfolio of Investment Trusts and traded closed-end funds that are themselves focused on emerging markets, one investing directly in Emerging Markets and the third is focused on Natural resources. Each of them has outperformed its benchmark index. It has four offices in London, Philadelphia (because a large part of its client base comprises US pension funds), Singapore and Dubai.
