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 30 April 2021)


Emerging market (EM) equities rebounded in April but trailed their developed market counterparts. Easing US Treasury yields and a weaker US dollar supported demand for EM stocks. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index gained 2.1%, whilst the MSCI World Index returned 4.3%, both in sterling terms.
Emerging Asian equities rose. Finishing higher were markets in Taiwan, South Korea and China. Strong exports from Taiwan and South Korea were bright spots. Meanwhile, markets in Thailand and India were some of the weakest performers.
Latin American markets gained, aided by Brazilian equities’ advance. In Mexico, the stock market rose, supported by a US-led recovery in manufacturing and exports.
In Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Russia’s market fell modestly. Fresh US sanctions on the country overshadowed a rise in crude oil prices. South African equities edged lower amidst political uncertainty and a slow inoculation pace in the country.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

We added to some existing holdings and initiated positions in the portfolio. Overall, we increased investments in materials, communication services, and health care by sector, and in China, Russia, and Brazil by market.
As a whole, we pared holdings in consumer staples, industrials, and information technology at the sector level. At the market level, we undertook sales in Thailand, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

Performance Attribution

Key stock detractors from TEMIT’s performance relative to the benchmark MSCI Emerging Markets Index included chip producer Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), South Korean internet company Naver, and car maker Brilliance China Automotive.
In sector terms, communication services, information technology, and consumer discretionary held back relative returns, all due to stock selection. From a market perspective, stock selection across Taiwan, China, and South Africa drove relative weakness.
Conversely, major stock contributors to TEMIT’s relative performance were South Korean conglomerate LG Corp, Taiwan-based chip designer MediaTek, and China-based polysilicon manufacturer Daqo New Energy.
At the sector level, stock selection in both industrials and financials, as well as an underweight in real estate, added to relative returns.


Prior to the pandemic, EM fundamentals appeared generally attractive to us, and we still believe that to be the case.
Our conviction in the structural investment opportunities within EMs has remained. We have seen a rapid proliferation of internet-driven companies in many markets—a development that appears nascent and could gain further traction. We believe that COVID-19 concerns could create a window for long-term investors to enter the asset class.
We are watching government policies as a possible source of market headwinds and tailwinds ahead.
We believe in the strength of an all-weather investment approach that can potentially perform well regardless of market conditions. In our view, a long-term, stock-driven, and valuation-aware focus is central to such an approach.
