Like all stock market investments, you take the risk that the companies, currencies and markets that TEMIT invests in do not perform as expected. Emerging markets can be subject to significant and rapid changes in value, particularly in the short-term, so the value of your investment can rise and fall accordingly. It could mean you may get back less than you invested. Although you are free to decide at any time when to sell shares in TEMIT, you should consider it a long-term investment.

Past performance is not a guarantee or an indicator of future performance.

The companies in which TEMIT invests are, by reason of the locations in which they operate, exposed to the risk of a lack of established legal, political, business and social frameworks to support a securities markets or the imposition of trade barriers and exchange controls. They may make it difficult to sell investments or result in price changes. It may not always be possible to sell shares in investment companies such as TEMIT.

There is no guarantee that TEMIT will achieve its objective.

TEMIT can borrow money to purchase additional investments (gearing). This can increase the risk to your investment if the cost of the gearing exceeds the investment return from it.

These and other risk considerations are covered in TEMIT’s annual report

We are unable to provide any advice about TEMIT’s suitability for your personal circumstances. If you are in any doubt you should speak to a professional financial adviser.

Monthly Commentary (as of 31 August 2017)

Emerging markets (EM) continued to outperform developed markets. Despite weakening earlier in the month, EM rose overall against a backdrop of continued tensions between the United States and North Korea, mixed signals over future US rate policy and a fall in the price of WTI crude oil.

Most EM currencies appreciated against the US dollar during the month. Commodities posted mixed results in August with WTI crude oil down 6% and Brent up slightly.

Asian markets recorded mixed performances with Thailand and China among the top performers, and the Philippines and South Korea recording declines, the latter being impacted by sentiment over intensified geopolitical tensions.

Numerous factors including higher metal prices supported the outperformance of Latin American equities with Argentina and Peru top performers.

Elsewhere, Russia and Hungary were among the top performers in emerging Europe. Kenya stood out in Africa but Nigeria declined due to significant currency devaluation.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

Investments in South Korea and Argentina were increased the most, as were holdings in financials. Holdings were reduced in a number of existing companies in China, India and Taiwan. Consumer discretionary and staples, information technology (IT) and energy sectors were also decreased.

Performance Attribution

Stock selection in consumer discretionary and financials was by far the largest performance contributor. Geographically, stock selection and overweight exposure in Brazil and Russia contributed to relative performance. Industrials and health care had a negative impact though and stock selection and an overweight position in Indonesia detracted. Stock selection in India and an underweight exposure to China also pressured returns.


The EM IT landscape has undergone a fundamental transformation, with a diverse set of EM companies having become leading players in the development of world-class technology. As we expect EM equity to continue its recovery, accompanied by fundamental improvements and reforms, we continue to refine our investment approach and position the portfolio to seek to take advantage of emerging opportunities.
