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 climbed in November but trailed their developed market peers. Positive COVID-19 vaccine development data and increased clarity on US election results fuelled investors’ risk appetite globally, notwithstanding a jump in coronavirus cases in several parts of the world. Hopes for economic normalisation supported a surge in cyclical stocks. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index rose by 5.8%, while the MSCI World Index returned 9.3%, both in sterling terms.
Emerging Asian equities advanced. Thailand and Indonesia were amongst the top gainers as upbeat global cues sent investors into markets that had lagged the region’s year-to-date rally. South Korea’s market soared. Chinese equities dipped in sterling terms as the pound’s strength erased yuan-denominated gains. A risk-on backdrop and higher commodity prices buoyed Latin American equities and currencies. Brazil outperformed the broader region. Solid economic indicators reflected a continued recovery in Brazil. Stocks in Mexico rallied. Its economy rebounded in the third quarter. Emerging European stocks logged stellar gains even as COVID-19 cases continued to rise in some European countries. Russia’s market benefitted from a jump in crude oil prices as progress in vaccine developments lifted prospects for global oil demand. In the Middle East and Africa region, South African stocks finished higher as investors looked past cuts to South Africa’s sovereign credit ratings.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

We added to some existing holdings and initiated a position in China-based solar glass maker Flat Glass. As a whole, we undertook purchases in consumer discretionary and information technology at the sector level, and in South Korea, China, and India at the market level. Overall, we reduced investments in communication services, consumer staples, and financials by sector. By market, we trimmed holdings in the United States and United Kingdom (both represented by companies that have significant exposures to EMs), as well as Indonesia.

Performance Attribution

Key stock detractors from TEMIT’s performance relative to the benchmark MSCI Emerging Markets Index included Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group, and internet companies Naver in South Korea and Tencent in China.
In sector terms, stock selection in consumer discretionary, an overweight in communication services, and an underweight in materials held back relative returns. By market, China, South Korea, and South Africa contributed to relative weakness, all due to stock selection.
From a sector perspective, stock selection in both financials and health care helped relative performance, as did an overweight in information technology. In market terms, stock selection in India and overweights in both Russia and Brazil supported relative returns.


Recent COVID-19 vaccine news has signalled a return to economic normalcy for most EMs sooner than initially anticipated, despite the resurgence of COVID-19 cases in many developed markets.
A stronger economic outlook has led to some sector rotation and a significantly larger number of stocks improving in performance. From a longer-term perspective, however, of greater importance to us is the concept of resilience versus vulnerability.
We have also found resilience in leading EMs at the macroeconomic level. We think that China, Taiwan and South Korea have handled the pandemic effectively, and we view this as a testament to the quality of their institutions, governance, and health care systems. We believe that long-term investment opportunities in India remain intact despite its cyclical slowdown, and the consumption story remains compelling to us.
The US election results could have wide-ranging implications for EMs. We expect reduced trade uncertainty and a less disruptive foreign policy under a potential Biden administration. Nonetheless, our bottom-up investment approach means that our focus stays on individual companies, and how each has prepared for the risks and opportunities that arise from a changing world.
