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 January 2020)

Stock markets worldwide fell in January, with emerging market (EM) equities slipping more than their developed market counterparts. EMs surrendered initial gains driven by the signing of a partial US-China trade deal, as the spread of a new virus in China and other countries clouded the global economic outlook.

Most Asian markets retreated as the virus outbreak in China dominated investor sentiment. Chinese equities ended lower as investors assessed potential drags on domestic manufacturing and consumption. Stocks in South Korea and Taiwan, both of which count China as a major trading partner, pulled back.

Latin American equities were broadly lower amidst virus fears and softer commodity prices. The Brazilian real’s weakness contributed to Brazil’s stock market decline. Mexican equities bucked the downtrend, aided by the US approval of a US-Mexico-Canada trade treaty.

Markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa lost ground. US-Iranian tension, which raised fears of a military conflict in the Middle East, was a source of uncertainty. Stocks in South Africa and Russia retreated amidst weakness in both countries’ currencies.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

We added to holdings in financials and consumer discretionary from a sector perspective, and in South Korea and India from a market perspective.

By sector, we conducted some sales in energy, industrials and information technology. Markets in which we reduced investments included Brazil, China and Kenya.

Performance Attribution

In sector terms, stock selection in information technology, consumer discretionary and health care held back relative returns. By market, stock selection in both Taiwan and South Korea capped relative performance, as did stock selection and an overweight position in Brazil.

By sector, stock selection in both consumer staples and energy, coupled with a lack of exposure to real estate, provided relative support. From a market perspective, stock selection in South Africa, an overweight position and stock selection in Russia, as well as an off-benchmark exposure to the United Kingdom drove relative strength.


Investor optimism following the US-China phase-one trade agreement was overshadowed by fears over the China-centred virus outbreak in late January. The resulting EM equity market decline has occurred after a year of strong returns. This suggests that a further correction could happen as concerns persist in the coming weeks and markets continue to consolidate.

From our bottom-up perspective, we continue to see plenty of EM companies capturing secular growth opportunities across diverse industries. Such businesses could show more resilience in the face of economic hiccups. Amongst our portfolio’s top holdings are technology and consumer-related companies exposed to fast-growing areas such as high-performance computing and e-commerce. Many are industry leaders that have proven themselves with sustained innovation or skills in fulfilling unmet consumer demand.
