Fund managers’ update

Emerging market stocks surged in January, bouncing back after the surprise outcome of the US presidential election hurt sentiment in late 2016. In US dollar terms, they enjoyed their best month since last March. The fund, meanwhile, rose by more than the market.

At the country level, Brazilian stocks rose sharply following the central bank’s decision to cut interest rates.

With metal prices - aluminium, iron ore and copper - showing particular strength, materials stocks led the market higher. The trend for defensive sectors to underperform continued, and staples and healthcare were the laggards once again. At the country level, Brazilian stocks rose sharply following the central bank’s decision to cut interest rates. Chinese and Korean stocks also outperformed, but Russian stocks lost some momentum following their strong performance in previous months.

During the month, supportive newsflow and encouraging economic data from China prompted us to increase our exposure there. Among others, we added Wanhua Chemical, China Agri-Industries, YY Inc and Alibaba. We funded this by selling Grasim Industries, China Life Insurance and Transmissor Energia, where corporate newsflow was deteriorating.

After these changes, the fund continues to offer highly attractive financial characteristics. It trades on a price-to-earnings ratio of 9.2x compared with 12.2x for the market. It also offers a dividend yield some 25% higher than its benchmark. The fund’s principal exposures are overweight positions in Russia and Thailand and underweights in India and Malaysia. At the sector level, we continue to have a tilt towards more cyclical areas of the market, with overweights to basic resources, industrials and construction and have less exposure in technology.
