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 May 2019)

An unexpected spike in trade tensions and renewed global economic growth concerns in May caused emerging markets (EM) equities to post their weakest monthly performance of the year. EM stocks fell by more than their developed markets peers amidst capital outflows.

In Asia, Chinese equities tumbled as US-China trade tensions re-escalated. Bucking the regional downtrend, stocks in India rose.

Latin American stocks were collectively led higher by Brazil’s advance. Conversely, Mexican equities declined as US President Donald Trump proposed tariffs on all imports from Mexico.

Russia’s stock market was a standout performer in Emerging Europe. Within the Middle East and Africa region, South Africa’s market declined.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

From a sector perspective, we undertook some purchases in information technology, energy and industrials. By market, we increased investments in China, Brazil and the United States. Repurchases of TEMIT’s own shares also occurred in the month.

We reduced holdings in real estate, financials and consumer staples sectors and Thailand, South Africa and the United Kingdom from a market perspective.

Performance Attribution

By sector, overweights to information technology and consumer discretionary as well as lack of exposure to utilities held back relative returns. Stock selection in both South Africa and Taiwan, together with a lack of exposure to Malaysia, contributed to relative weakness.

Across sectors, financials, energy and communication services boosted relative returns. In market terms, an underweight to China and an overweight to Russia drove relative strength. The United Kingdom was also a relative contributor


We believe that the asset class still has significant potential, especially after the market falls last year and in May. We expect better corporate performance next year. We believe that 2020 could be a strong year for EM earnings based on cyclical recoveries that have started to emerge.

As long-term investors, we continue to seek companies in which we have confidence in management’s ability to deliver sustainable growth that we believe the market is mispricing.
