Market environment

  • China’s weak economy remains a burden, as reflected in the publication of lower retail sales and a fall in the NBS manufacturing index.

  • May was also notable for elections in a number of countries (India, South Africa and Mexico), which seem to have increased regional volatility.

  • Brazil’s central bank cut its key interest rate by 25 bps, as opposed to the 50 bps that had been expected, weighing on the national currency and markets.

  • Emerging markets were down over the month as China and Brazil underperformed.

Performance commentary

  • The Fund posted a negative return in May, as did its reference indicator.

  • MercadoLibre of Brazil was the main contributor to the Fund’s performance after it published good results for the last quarter.

  • The Fund’s most costly positions were in South Korea: Hyundai Motor, Samsung Electronics and LG Chem.

  • Latin American stocks such as Eletrobras, Grupo Banorte and Equatorial Energia were down too.

Outlook strategy

  • We are keeping a significant allocation to Chinese markets, taking advantage of market inefficiencies and the upside potential for companies with strong balance sheets and valuations that do not fully reflect their fundamentals.

  • After Chinese stocks rallied, we took some profits on stocks that had performed well, like Miniso, New Oriental.

  • We increased our exposure to Vipshop, which is lagging well behind other internet stocks and is now one of our top 10 positions.

  • Before the announcement of India’s election results, we also strengthened our position in real estate management company Embassy Office Parks.

  • We are remaining exposed to Latin America, and Mexico in particular, which is benefitting from structural trends such as reindustrialisation in North America.

  • We are keeping a concentrated portfolio balanced between growth and discounted stocks, with a particular emphasis on valuations and sustainability criteria.
