Early this year, Huntsman School of Business alumnus Ajay C. Krishnan was appointed co-fund manager of the Wasatch Emerging Markets Select Fund. This new fund was launched by Wasatch Advisors, an employee-owned investment advisor firm that had $13.1 billion in assets under management as of November. The fund invests in 30 to 50 emerging-markets companies that are beyond a small-cap focus.
Mr. Krishnan, who earned his MBA from the Huntsman School of Business in 1995, manages the fund with Roger Edgley. Together, they also co-manage the Wasatch Emerging India Fund and the Wasatch Global Opportunities Fund.
