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 30 September 2017)

Emerging-market (EM) equities significantly outperformed their developed-market counterparts over the third quarter of 2017 despite a slight pull back in September.

For the quarter as a whole, some of the main drivers of EM performance were generally encouraging economic data from China, signs of economic recovery and hopes for reform in Brazil, a strong rebound in global commodity prices based on firming demand, and EM currency strength against the weaker US dollar.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

Investments in South Korea, the US and Mexico were increased the most. In terms of sectors, some additions were undertaken in financials and telecommunication services. Positions in a number of companies were divested, as well as a reduction in holdings in China, India and Saudi Arabia. Holdings in the consumer discretionary, information technology and energy sectors were decreased.

Performance Attribution

Stock selection in consumer discretionary and financials was by far the largest performance contributor. Positive stock selection in consumer staples and an underweight position in telecommunication services also had a positive impact. Geographically, stock selection in China and South Africa, and Brazil and Russia (where overweight exposures also helped) contributed to relative performance. Industrials and information technology had a negative impact. In terms of markets, stock selection in Indonesia, Thailand and Hungary detracted. An overweight exposure to Pakistan also pressured returns.


We remain optimistic about opportunities amongst EM equities in the current climate, while being mindful of potential risks. We continue to proceed with our value-oriented investment process, taking into consideration market sentiment, and we believe it is important for investors to be globally diversified. Overall, we believe that the investment case for emerging markets continues to centre around demographics and the dramatic transformation of many emerging stock markets that used to depend on ‘old-economy’ models (such as commodities or infrastructure) moving into more innovative, value-added products and services.
