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.

Quarterly Commentary (as of 30 September 2019)

Stock markets worldwide weathered a volatile quarter amidst bumpy US-China trade negotiations and global recession fears. Central banks in several major markets, including the United States, cut interest rates to support economic activity. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index returned -1.0%, while the MSCI World Index returned 4.0%.

Most Asian markets finished the quarter lower. Chinese stocks fell as the US-China trade row remained in focus. Trade tensions aside, markets received a welcome surprise when China decided to remove investment quotas under two foreign investor programmes. In India, equities retreated as the economy's momentum faltered, though corporate tax cuts and other stimulus measures helped stem the decline. Bucking the regional downtrend, Taiwanese equities rose.

Stocks in Latin America declined. Argentina’s market tumbled amidst increased political and economic uncertainty.Brazilian equities fell but fared better than their regional peers. In Mexico, the central bank reduced its benchmark interest rate in view of weak domestic growth and lower inflation.

Markets in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region were mixed. Lower oil prices provided a challenging backdrop for Russia’s stock market, though an interest rate cut by the central bank helped underpin investor sentiment. In South Africa, economic concerns continued to weigh on the market.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

In sector terms, purchases were concentrated in materials, industrials and health care. By market, we added to holdings in China, Brazil and South Korea.

Meanwhile, sectors in which we conducted some sales included information technology, consumer staples and financials. From a market perspective, we reduced holdings in South Africa, Cambodia and Peru.

Performance Attribution

At the sector level, an overweight to information technology lifted relative returns, as did stock selection in both consumer discretionary and communication services. By market, China, South Korea and Taiwan were relative contributors, all due to stock selection.

By sector, stock selection in consumer staples, industrials and health care hampered relative returns. At the market level, stock selection in Mexico and Russia drove relative weakness. Brazil was another relative detractor.


The US-China trade conflict has continued to dominate market attention in recent months, with both governments imposing tariffs on each other’s goods. The impact of the trade war has not been limited to China; rather we have seen global implications.

Overall, slowing economic growth expectations, declining inflationary pressures and easing monetary policies in developed markets have generally led emerging markets’ central banks to turn more dovish. We expect this trend to continue, with potential rate cuts in markets such as Brazil, Russia and Mexico.

Amongst the portfolio’s top holdings are technology and consumer-related companies that are highly competitive and appear well-positioned to gain market share even in the face of macroeconomic challenges.
