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 July 2019)

Emerging market (EM) equities declined in local currency terms in July, while developed market stocks advanced. Market sentiment was largely unsteady amidst persistent global trade tensions, a weaker outlook for world economic growth and shifting expectations for the size of a potential US interest rate cut.

Lingering uncertainty around US-China trade relations and a slowdown in China's economy formed a muted backdrop for Asian markets. Stocks in South Korea fell as its trade disputes with Japan and North Korea's missile launches fuelled investor caution. India’s market declined as the country’s budget disappointed investors In contrast, Taiwan's index rose on strength in technology heavyweights.

Within Latin America, Brazil’s market was the top performer. The central bank cut its benchmark interest rate to a record low, raising expectations for another rate reduction in September. Meanwhile in Mexico, the resignation of the finance minister, concerns about state-owned oil company Pemex’s business plan and weak economic growth weighed on equities.

In the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, equities in Russia benefitted from an interest rate cut by the central bank. In South Africa, concerns about the country’s budget deficit took centre stage as the government announced a bailout for state-owned power utility Eskom.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

Our investments in the materials sector increased. From a market perspective, we added to holdings in Brazil, Mexico and India.

We conducted some sales in information technology, consumer staples and consumer discretionary and in China, Peru and the United States from a market perspective.

Performance Attribution

In sector terms, stock selection in consumer discretionary and communication services boosted relative returns, as did an overweight to information technology. By market, South Korea, Taiwan and China were relative contributors, all due to stock selection.

By sector, relative returns were capped by stock selection in both consumer staples and industrials, as well as a lack of exposure to utilities. At the market level, stock selection in Indonesia and Brazil, as well as a lack of exposure to the United Arab Emirates, were areas of relative weakness.


We expect the US-China trade conflict to remain a major headwind and believe that investors should be prepared for market volatility as the two major powers continue to iron out outstanding differences.

However, we believe many good-quality companies can still be found in EMs, where macroeconomic fundamentals remain largely healthy.

The expansion of the middle class has been one of the most influential demographic changes in EMs and has underpinned much of the growth in these economies. Technology also remains an integral part of the EM story. It has made an impact across many parts of the economy, and we continue to see companies using technology and innovation to drive growth and earnings.
