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 March 2019)

Global stock markets rallied over the first quarter, as thawing US-China trade relations and a dovish pivot in US monetary policy eased worries of a world economic slowdown. Strong portfolio inflows helped buoy emerging-market (EM) equities, though their performance lagged their developed-market counterparts.

Asian equities led regional performance across EMs. Hopes for a US-China trade deal provided a major boost for equities in China and export-oriented markets such as Taiwan.

Latin American markets rose, though they collectively lagged broader EMs. In Brazil, disappointing 2018 economic growth data and unease around the progress of a crucial social security reform capped equity returns. Meanwhile, international ratings agency Standard & Poor’s lowered Mexico’s sovereign outlook to negative from stable on concerns about the country’s growth and energy policy.

Emerging European markets advanced, with Russian equities posting some of the strongest gains. Stocks in Hungary finished higher. Elsewhere, South African equities rose.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

We purchased some companies in the financials, information technology and consumer staples sectors. By market, we increased investments in a US company that derives much of its earnings from India and also invested in companies in China and India. Repurchases of TEMIT’s own shares also occurred. Overall, we sold some companies in communication services, consumer discretionary and energy sectors, and Peru, South Korea and South Africa from a market perspective.

Performance Attribution

Across sectors, financials, consumer staples and consumer discretionary boosted relative returns, all due to stock selection. By market, stock selection across South Africa, South Korea and Russia contributed to relative strength. Conversely, by sector, stock selection in both real estate and health care held back relative performance. Brazil drove relative weakness from a market perspective. Hungary and Peru were also relative detractors.


Continued economic growth, increased risk appetite and the availability of compelling investment opportunities in EMs have been key drivers of recent fund flows into the asset class.

As long-term investors, we continue to focus on companies that demonstrate sustainable earnings power and trade at a discount relative to their intrinsic value and other investments available in the market.
