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 2019)

Global stock markets began 2019 on a strong note, driven by optimism around US-China trade negotiations and hopes for a prolonged pause in US interest rate hikes. Emerging-market (EM) equities benefitted from local currency strength and robust asset-class inflows to finish January ahead of their developed-market counterparts.

Asian equities rebounded. China's stock market rallied on signs of progress in US-China trade talks and fresh policies to counter slower economic growth. South Korea's index rose as technology heavyweights surged. Conversely, stocks in India declined.

In Latin America, Brazil was a leading performer as it gained on the back of higher commodity prices. Mexico and Peru, while recording gains, lagged their regional peers. Emerging European equities gained ground. Russia posted strong returns amidst higher oil prices and an appreciation in the rouble. Meanwhile, South African equities advanced on the back of a stronger rand.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

In sector terms, we added to holdings in financials, materials and consumer staples. By market, we conducted some purchases in China, the US and India. Meanwhile, we undertook some sales in communication services, consumer discretionary and information technology from a sector perspective, and South Korea, Brazil and Peru from a market perspective.

Performance Attribution

Across sectors, financials, consumer discretionary and communication services boosted relative returns, all due to stock selection. By market, stock selection across China, South Korea and Brazil contributed to relative strength. Conversely, by sector, stock selection in both health care and consumer staples held back relative performance. The UK and Peru drove relative weakness from a market perspective, as did a lack of exposure to Turkey.


Investor sentiment in EMs improved in January, supported by a dovish US Federal Reserve and hopes for the US and China to reach a trade deal by March, when higher US tariffs on Chinese goods are poised to set in.

We believe that confidence in EMs could strengthen further on several factors: economic growth differentials between EMs and developed markets are widening in the former’s favour, EM currencies appear undervalued despite balance of payment surpluses in many markets, the EM earnings outlook remains robust, and EM equities continue to trade at valuations below developed-market stocks.
