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.

Emerging market (EM) equities finished a volatile month higher, while developed market stocks declined. Recovering economic momentum in emerging Asia cushioned EMs’ performance against renewed recession fears in Europe as mounting COVID-19 infections pushed several countries back into lockdowns. Rising coronavirus cases in the United States, plus uncertainty around additional fiscal stimulus and the presidential election, also drove market caution. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index gained 2.1%, while the MSCI World Index fell by 3.1%, both in sterling terms. Emerging Asian equities defied market declines globally to deliver gains. Stocks in China rose as its economic pick-up gained pace. Taiwan’s market advanced with technology related stocks proving to be resilient. Latin American equities fell. Brazil’s market pulled back in sterling terms, with the Brazilian real’s weakness widening a dip in local-currency terms. Conversely, Mexican equities rose in sterling terms as the Mexican peso’s appreciation erased local-currency losses. Emerging European markets pulled back as a fresh wave of COVID-19 infections in Europe brought on tighter mobility restrictions. A faltering outlook for economic momentum and energy demand drove oil prices lower. Against this backdrop, Russian equities fell. In the Middle East and Africa region, South African stocks gained in sterling terms.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

We added to some existing positions, including South Korea-based semiconductor and consumer electronics company Samsung Electronics. Overall, we increased investments in information technology, materials, and financials by sector. By market, we undertook purchases in South Korea, Taiwan, and the United States (represented by IMAX, a US-listed entertainment technology company with significant exposure to EMs). Repurchases of TEMIT’s own shares also occurred.
Amongst holdings that we trimmed was Unilever. As a whole, we reduced positions in consumer staples and communication services at the sector level, and in Russia, China, and the United Kingdom (Unilever) at the market level.

Performance Attribution

Key stock detractors from TEMIT’s performance relative to the benchmark MSCI Emerging Markets Index included Russian internet company Yandex, car maker Brilliance China Automotive, and Unilever.
Analysing by sector, consumer discretionary, communication services, and consumer staples capped relative returns, all due to stock selection. In market terms, stock selection in China, an overweight in Russia, and an off-benchmark position in the United Kingdom (Unilever) detracted from relative returns.
By sector, stock selection in financials, an underweight in energy, and a lack of exposure to real estate supported relative performance. At the market level, stock selection in both South Africa and India boosted relative returns, as did a lack of exposure to Saudi Arabia.


We have seen increased differentiation within EMs amidst rapid changes brought about by various economic, social, and exogenous shocks such as the pandemic. EM equities have as a whole been resilient, although this masks wide divergences across countries and sectors. As a region, emerging Asia has outperformed. By industry, the narrow leadership of internet, technology, consumer and other “new economy” companies thriving amidst COVID-19 has been apparent.
Central to our approach is our philosophy of seeking companies that demonstrate sustainable earnings power, trading at discounts to our assessment of their intrinsic worth.
In our view, innovation and technology have been the driving forces behind EMs’ recovery amidst the COVID-19 fallout.
While developments from the US presidential election—and their potential impact on US-China relations—could spur market volatility, our focus remains on individual companies that could fare well over the longer run.
