Manager Commentary

Fund Managers

Month in review

  • The trust outperformed the benchmark in November, with stock selection and country allocation contributing to returns.
  • Stock section in India, as well as overweight exposure driven by security level conviction, was the leading contributor to performance in November. Holdings in the financial services sector, including Housing Development Finance Corporation, outperformed as they recovered from concerns over non-bank financial defaults in the past few months.
  • In China, stock selection aided performance. Performance was led by positions in Alibaba and Tencent, which re-rated on better-than-expected results. Tencent, where the uncertainty over gaming regulations still lingers, was bolstered by advertising monetisation, offsetting the weak gaming data. Additionally, pan-Asian insurer AIA Group outperformed after reporting strong results that included double-digit growth in new business value in both China and Hong Kong during the third quarter.
  • Stock selection in Taiwan was a headwind in November, with TSMC a leading detractor. Performance for the semiconductor manufacturer pulled back as the IT hardware sector faces a cyclical downturn, driven by expectations of weaker demand in 2019 from Apple and other large clients.
  • Overweight exposure to Peru, the result of stock selection, hindered performance. Performance was driven by exposure to diversified financial services provider Credicorp, which lagged broader markets in the month but has performed well this year.
  • Looking ahead

  • The recent recovery in emerging market (EM) and Asian stocks reflects more equity-friendly assumptions about the path of Federal Reserve rate hikes and the prospects for productive trade negotiations between the U.S. and China. We believe these developments are fundamentally bullish and may support a continued rebound in EM stocks in the near-term.
  • This year’s market volatility is a reminder that sentiment can change quickly and that timing the significant swings that can result is quite difficult.
  • We continue to advocate taking a long-term view on the growth opportunity and use periods of weakness to build exposure, particularly for clients underweight relative to an all-country world index.
