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 navigated a choppy month and finished behind developed market stocks. Investors welcomed improving economic data, encouraging news on potential COVID-19vaccines and treatments, and a new US monetary policy approach signalling an extended period of low interest rates. However, new clusters of COVID-19 infections and shaky US-China ties capped market sentiment. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index gained 0.2%, while the MSCI World Index returned 4.6%, both in sterling terms. Asian equities rose, aided by Chinese stocks’ advance. China and the United States pledged commitment to their trade deal, even as the US administration ordered fresh restrictions on Chinese technology companies. In India, equities gained as better-than-expected corporate earnings eclipsed an uptrend in COVID-19 cases. Conversely, Taiwanese stocks declined Latin American equities fell, with Brazil’s market recording a steep decline. Stocks in Mexico lost ground. The economy logged a sharp second-quarter contraction, and officials pared their economic forecasts for the year. In the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, South African equities fell amidst weakness in bank stocks. Stocks in Russia declined despite news of its progress in developing a COVID-19 vaccine, as investors eyed political unrest in neighbouring Belarus.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

We added to some existing holdings and initiated a position in Taiwan-based semiconductor company Mediatek. As a whole, we increased investments in consumer discretionary and consumer staples at the sector level, and in South Africa, China, and Taiwan at the market level. Repurchases of TEMIT’s own shares also occurred. We trimmed some positions and divested India-based drug maker Glenmark Pharmaceuticals. Overall, we reduced investments in communication services, health care, and financials by sector, and in South Korea, Russia, and Hungary by market.

Performance Attribution

Key stock contributors to TEMIT’s performance relative to the benchmark MSCI Emerging Markets Index included Russian internet company Yandex, South Korea-based Samsung Life Insurance, and India-based ICICI Bank. Relative performance was bolstered by communication services, financials, and industrials in sector terms, and Russia, India, and South Africa in market terms, all due to stock selection. By sectors, stock selection in both consumer discretionary and materials, together with an overweight and stock selection in information technology, held back relative performance. By market, stock selection in China, plus an overweight and stock selection in Brazil, were the main drivers of relative weakness. South Korea detracted moderately.


Mixed developments across the COVID-19, economic, and geopolitical fronts dominated investor sentiment in August. From a longer-term perspective, we are focused on three new realities in EMs. One is their increased institutional resilience. Second, the nature of emerging economies has changed. The third reality centres on innovation, and the notion of EMs “leapfrogging” the developed world in terms of infrastructure and business models. US actions against Chinese technology companies have undercut near-term investor confidence in the semiconductor and other related industries. However, we remain positive about longer-term technology demand, driven by growth in areas such as cloud applications and high-performance computing. We continue to seek quality companies with strong competitive advantages, exposures to areas of secular growth, and sources of sustainable earnings power.
