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 31 March 2020)

Stocks worldwide tumbled in a volatile quarter, with emerging market (EM) equities falling more than their developed market counterparts. The escalation of the COVID-19 virus into a global pandemic hurt large segments of the world economy and fanned recession fears.

Asian equities endured a sell-off as investors counted the costs of travel restrictions, supply chain disruptions and weaker demand. Policymakers in the region unveiled fiscal support, interest-rate cuts and other relief measures. China's stock market showed strong resilience over the quarter, reducing much of its initial losses as the country appeared to contain the virus and economic activity seemed to improve. South Korea also showed progress in slowing the virus' spread. Several other markets confronted a jump in infections. Stocks in India slid as the government ordered a nationwide lockdown.

The contagion’s impact on global economies and commodity prices weighed heavily on Latin American stocks and currencies. Oil prices plunged amidst softer demand and the collapse of a supply pact amongst major oil producers, with Saudi Arabia cutting its official selling prices. Brazilian and Mexican stocks fell sharply. In Brazil, the government announced measures to support the economy, while the central bank lowered its key interest rate to a record low and injected liquidity into the banking system.

Markets in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region lost ground amidst the global equity rout. Falling oil prices further weighed on Russia’s stock market. Stocks in South Africa fell as it imposed a lockdown to slow the spread of the virus.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

From a sector perspective, we added to investments in communication services and consumer discretionary. By market, we undertook purchases in South Korea, Brazil and India.

At the sector level, we conducted some sales in energy, information technology and industrials. Across markets, we reduced holdings in China, Taiwan and the United States.

Performance Attribution

In sector terms, stock selection across financials, health care and consumer discretionary limited relative returns. By market, an overweight in Russia, an underweight in China and stock selection in India drove relative weakness.

At the market level, stock selection in both South Africa and Hungary provided relative support, as did an off-benchmark exposure to the United Kingdom. By sector, relative performance was bolstered by an overweight in communication services, stock selection in materials, plus stock selection and an underweight in industrials.


China appears to be containing the coronavirus domestically, while developed countries are focused on slowing its progress. Policymakers globally have unveiled massive monetary and fiscal packages, though the extent to which they can offset demand destruction remains to be seen.

We expect significant corporate earnings downgrades for 2020 in most EM countries and sectors, though we also anticipate significant earnings recoveries in the future, as the virus outbreak eventually passes. Stock valuations look more appealing to us than they have for some time, although we recognise that we are also likely to see volatility in earnings forecasts in the coming months.

We continue to assess the longer-term implications of the crisis, such as the potential impact on supply chains of key technology, health care and other products, and the degree to which end-customers are willing to pay more for greater security of supply. We are also seeking companies that could benefit from any permanent behavioural changes in society as technology adoption accelerates, in areas such as e-commerce and cloud computing.
