Manager Commentary

Month in review

September was a strong month for the trust, helped by a return of the “income tailwind” – a sharp contrast to conditions a year ago. Although markets were not down a significant amount in September, the general weakness over 2018 has been more beneficial to the dividend style in general, with the “value with quality” characteristics of the portfolio helping.• Stock selection in China was a key contributor over the month, helped by a bounceback in some of our A-shares (SAIC, Huayu Automotive, Jiangsu Yanghe Brewery); relative performance benefited from some weakness in Chinese internet stocks.• India was a positive contributor as a result of the portfolio's underweight position in the country and exposure to select IT names, such as Tata Consultancy Services.• After some challenging months, Russia contributed: Sberbank saw some recovery in its share price after a weak period (with investors generally concerned about geopolitics/sanctions risk) but there was no fundamental news on the stock in the month.• Brazil was the key detractor over a month when the market rallied ahead of elections. Performance was negative as a result of not holding Vale or Petrobras. The trust owns domestic-orientated names such as Itaú Unibanco, and we have added to these holdings this year; with the market nervous around the upcoming presidential elections, domestic stocks generally suffered more.

Looking ahead

We believe the dollar’s bounce is unlikely to last, as it is currently overvalued in real terms, and widening twin deficits should lead to dollar weakness down the road.• Given our positive view on local earnings in emerging markets (EM), we could see a strong bounce in EM earnings next year in dollar terms.• Recent developments outside the US hint at outcomes that are more market-friendly than originally feared.Current EM valuations represent a discount to the historical average, and we believe this may prove to be a good entry point for long-term investors, should our expectation of a quieter dollar and a bounce in EM earnings prove correct.
