In their words (as of 31 Jan 2018)

The NAV marginally underperformed the benchmark in January, while the share price outperformed as the discount tightened. Our off-benchmark exposure to MD Medical Group, a private healthcare provider for women and children, weighed on relative returns. 2017 marked the lowest birth rate in 20 years, depressing sentiment toward the underlying business. Our recent move to underweight exposure in Magnit, Russia's largest retailer, contributed to relative returns. During January, the company reported weaker-than-expected fourth-quarter 2017 results and announced it would not pay dividends in 2018. Russian food inflation fell to negative territory at the end of last year, adding further margin pressure to the company. Given the positive newsflow and the supportive growth and dollar trends in place, we believe further upside and outperformance over developed markets are likely this year. That said, uptrends typically experience healthy pullbacks before gathering steam for a run at new highs. Investors seeking to add exposure to emerging market equities might look to take advantage of periodic bouts of volatility. We remain most constructive on our exposures in Russia, where an economic recovery is underway, oil prices are supportive, and valuations are compelling.
