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.

Stocks worldwide rose in August.
Emerging market (EM) equities slightly outpaced their developed market peers in sterling terms.
Emerging Asian equities advanced. Southeast Asia staged a strong market rebound as COVID-19 restrictions began to ease in countries such as Thailand and Indonesia. China’s market rose modestly to trail the region.
Latin American stocks lagged broader EMs on the upside, largely due to the Brazilian market’s decline amidst weaker commodity prices and fiscal and interest rate concerns. In Mexico, equities rose.
Markets across the Europe, Middle East and Africa region achieved broad-based gains.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

We added to some existing holdings in the portfolio. Amongst new positions was Tata Consultancy Services, an India-based technology services provider. We increased investments in materials, financials, and consumer staples at the sector level, and in China, South Korea, and Brazil at the market level.
We pared some positions and divested India-based food delivery company Zomato.

Performance Attribution

Key stock detractors from TEMIT’s performance relative to the benchmark MSCI Emerging Markets Index included Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba Group, South Africa-based internet company Naspers, and South Korean semiconductor and consumer electronics company Samsung Electronics.
In sector terms, stock selection across consumer discretionary, financials, and consumer staples capped relative returns. From a market perspective, an overweight and stock selection in South Korea, an underweight and stock selection in India, and stock selection in South Africa were areas of relative weakness.
Conversely, major stock contributors to TEMIT’s relative returns included China-based Guangzhou Tinci Materials Technology, Russia-based Yandex, and Thailand-based Kasikornbank.
At the sector level, health care and materials boosted relative returns.


Outbreaks triggered by the COVID-19 Delta variant have resulted in new lockdowns and hindered economic normalisation in some EMs in the short term. However, we have seen countries accelerate vaccination efforts and vaccine manufacturers increase their capacities, leading us to believe that most economies are on the path to normalisation.
Amongst investor concerns is a potential increase in US interest rates. This could be negative for EMs with macro vulnerabilities.
In China, tighter regulations have coincided with a slowdown in economic momentum and a resurgence in COVID-19 cases. We see value in diversifying our exposure across sectors within China, and we are seeking investment opportunities where companies display sustainable earnings power.
Overall, we believe that EMs are likely to remain resilient in the face of various challenges, supported by a largely healthier debt profile compared with developed markets, as well as banking systems that have mostly withstood stress from the pandemic. We expect further progress in the technology and consumption trends that have become the new economic drivers for many EMs.
