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.

Quarterly Commentary (as of 30 June 2017)

Emerging markets (EM) outperformed their developed-market counterparts for the sixth consecutive month in June. Encouraging economic data from China, fund inflows and corporate earnings growth were among the key drivers of performance.

Commodity prices declined over the second quarter despite a late-June rally. Oil spot prices declined by 9% in the quarter and benchmark Chinese iron ore spot prices fell by 19% over the period.

Asia was the top-performing region for the quarter with China, South Korea and Taiwan among the best performers. The IT sector was a key driver of performance across the region.

Latin America was among the weakest-performing regions, largely due to lower oil prices and the political turmoil in Brazil. Russia was among the weakest performers in Europe and globally, on investor concerns over the impact of lower oil prices and additional US sanctions. Macroeconomic data, however, point towards a recovery in Russia.

Portfolio Changes & Positioning

Investments in Brazil, India, South Korea and Russia were increased the most. In terms of sectors, investments were made in financials, health care and materials.

The Investment Manager divested positions in a number of companies, as well as reducing holdings in a number of existing positions in China, Pakistan, Mexico and Saudi Arabia. Holdings in the information technology, consumer discretionary and telecommunication services sectors were also decreased.

Performance Attribution

Stock selection in financials (underweight relative to the benchmark Index), information technology (overweight) and industrials (underweight) contributed the most, whereas energy and consumer discretionary had a negative impact. Geographically, stock selection in Taiwan, China, South Africa and Brazil had a positive impact, but overweight exposures to the US and Pakistan, and stock selection in Peru and Turkey, detracted the most.


We believe that emerging markets continue to offer superior growth compared with developed markets. The long-term trend of increased consumer penetration and improving affluence, leading to a shift to more premium products and services, should continue to bode well for these markets in the future. The fundamentals of emerging-market equities also remain attractive.
