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 Macrh 2021)


Emerging market (EM) equities rose over the first quarter of 2021 but lagged developed market stocks. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index gained 1.4%, while the MSCI World Index returned 4.1%, both in sterling terms.
Emerging Asian equities advanced. Taiwan’s technology-heavy index rallied as the economy benefitted from strong technology exports. Indian equities climbed.
Conversely, China’s market fell. Caution around monetary policy, stock valuations, US-China tensions, and increased regulatory scrutiny of Chinese internet firms overshadowed a continued economic recovery.
Latin American equities fell. Mexico’s central bank raised its economic growth forecast for the year, thanks in part to a stronger outlook for US industrial activity.
Markets across Europe, Middle East and Africa were mixed as investors weighed renewed contagion in certain countries against ongoing immunisation programmes. An upswing in oil prices buoyed Russian equities, although worries of potential US sanctions against Russia checked returns. South African stocks rallied on firmer commodity prices, the country’s vaccination drive, and a reopening economy.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

We added to some existing holdings in the portfolio. Amongst new positions was India-based private health care services provider Apollo Hospitals Enterprise. As a whole, we increased investments in consumer discretionary, real estate, and financials at the sector level. In market terms, we undertook purchases in South Africa, India, and the United Kingdom (represented by global consumer goods giant Unilever, which generates more than half of its sales in EMs). Repurchases of TEMIT’s own shares also occurred.

Performance Attribution

Key stock contributors to TEMIT’s performance relative to the benchmark MSCI Emerging Markets Index included South Korean internet company Naver, chip maker Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), and Taiwan-based chip designer MediaTek.
Sectors that lifted relative returns included communication services, information technology, and consumer discretionary, all due to stock selection. At the market level, stock selection in China, Taiwan, and South Korea drove relative strength.
In contrast, major stock detractors from relative performance included Brazilian lender Itau Unibanco, car maker Brilliance China Automotive, and Unilever.
Weak investor sentiment towards Brazil weighed on Itau Unibanco. Mixed news held back Brilliance China. We continually assess the fundamentals and valuations of these holdings against our investment theses.
From a sector perspective, an underweight in materials was the main drag on relative returns.


Fresh waves of COVID-19 infection have continued to test economies and health care systems globally, just as more countries step up the rollout of vaccines. Many EMs have remained less leveraged than developed economies at the sovereign, corporate and household levels. EM banking systems have largely withstood stress despite loan moratoriums. Technology and consumption have also become new drivers of economic growth for many EMs. Overall, we expect a sharp earnings rebound in EMs this year from a low base last year.
Reflationary expectations and higher US bond yields have stoked market volatility.
A long-term, stock-driven, and valuation-aware focus is central to our investment approach. We seek companies with sustainable earnings power, trading at discounts to our perception of their intrinsic worth. We have found many such companies operating in areas of secular growth related to technology and consumption. Of particular appeal to us are business models and management teams that display agility and resilience in a fast-c
