Market environment

  • The MSCI EM index in EUR gained 5.3% in June as Taiwanese and Korean technology companies involved in the AI revolution rallied, and Indian stocks were strong after national elections.
  • Latin American markets were down, with Mexico declining after election results, and Lula spooking the markets amid fears of a deterioration in public finances in Brazil.
  • Chinese markets backtracked on the previous weeks’ rally due to gloomy economic data and concerns about the US elections.

Performance commentary

  • The Fund delivered a positive return but significantly lagged its reference indicator.
  • This underperformance mainly stemmed from our high exposure to Latin America,
  • and to the disappointing performance of our Chinese holdings, despite solid fundamentals and decent results. We took profits on stocks that had performed well, such as New Oriental, but this was not enough.
  • Our overexposure to Mexico and Brazil weighed on performance as these markets trailed global EM indices.
  • However, our Taiwanese and Korean technology stocks (TSMC and Hyundai) and our Indian holdings (ICICI Lombard) rose significantly.

Outlook strategy

  • Emerging market economies should benefit from long-term structural trends: artificial intelligence, nearshoring and the new commodities supercycle.
  • We continue to hold a concentrated yet balanced portfolio of quality stocks that either offer good visibility (Asian tech, India) or are trading at very attractive valuation levels (China, Mexico, Brazil).
  • We added two new Taiwanese positions to our portfolio during the month to make up for our underweighting of the country and diversify our exposure to the AI value chain: Elite Material and Lite-On.
  • We remain confident about our current portfolio and top ten positions, feeling relaxed about their fundamentals, governance and valuations.
