SICAV
Emerging Markets Discovery Equity Fund
A focused, yet well-diversified all-cap fund of typically 50-80 emerging markets companies. We seek to identify “forgotten” stocks that are under-owned and under-researched by mainstream investors, and which we believe are positioned to benefit from a fundamental re-rating.

FACTSHEET

SFDR DISCLOSURE
31-Jan-2020 - Ernest Yeung, Portfolio Manager,
The coronavirus outbreak will likely weigh on emerging markets in the short term but we remain constructive about the medium- to long-term outlook. We believe economic activity will normalise and market volatility will ease with signs that the outbreak has been contained, aided by the Chinese government’s measures to support its economy. The “forgotten” stocks we own should keep pace with the broader market even as we see divergence between growth and value stocks.

Overview
Strategy
Fund Summary
We look for signs of positive fundamental change among stable, but unloved, businesses that we believe are facing unwarranted scepticism from investors. Meeting company management is central to our approach, as we aim to identify quality teams with strategic vision, a roadmap for success and the ability to execute. The promotion of environmental and/or social characteristics is achieved through the fund's commitment to maintain at least 10% of the value of its portfolio invested in Sustainable Investments, as defined by the SFDR. Additionally, we apply a proprietary responsible screen (exclusion list). The manager is not constrained by the fund’s benchmark, which is used for performance comparison purposes only.

31-May-2024 - Ernest Yeung, Portfolio Manager,
Emerging market equities edged higher in May. Fresh hopes for interest rate cuts in the US and strength from China initially supported sentiment, but disappointing corporate results, hawkishness in the Federal Reserve’s latest meeting minutes and uncertain election outcomes capped gains. Within the portfolio, stock selection in industrials contributed the most. An off-benchmark holding in a Chinese shipbuilder was helpful as its first-quarter update showed stronger-than-expected orders and sales. Stock picks in information technology also added value. Renewed investor enthusiasm about prospects for artificial intelligence boosted shares of a chip designer and electronics manufacturing services company in Taiwan, as well as a Korean chipmaker. These offset the negative impact from our lack of exposure to a contract chipmaker. Conversely, security selection within financials detracted, with our bank holdings in Indonesia and Brazil among the key laggards. That said, we think the Indonesian bank remains well-run and offers a compelling dividend yield, while we believe the Brazilian lender continues to execute well. Stock selection in China was also negative. An internet name we hold pulled back as management forecast slower growth. An online travel platform also hurt following recent sharp gains, though we think its growth opportunities are still intact.
31-Jan-2024 - Ernest Yeung, Portfolio Manager,
Financials remains our biggest absolute allocation and our largest overweight versus the benchmark. We added to several of our emerging market bank holdings, which we believe have strong capital buffers, low-risk balance sheets, and high-quality franchises, positioning them well to gain market share and accelerate loan growth. We also have a considerable absolute allocation in consumer discretionary, where we own “forgotten” names with self-help stories and idiosyncratic drivers. Recently, we further increased our exposure to consumer discretionary by buying more shares in several of our South Korean and Chinese holdings within the auto supply chain and travel sectors.
31-Jan-2024 - Ernest Yeung, Portfolio Manager,
China remains the portfolio’s biggest country position in absolute terms, but we reduced our overall exposure over the month after we sold our stake in a food and beverage business. We think that cyclical and structural headwinds could pressure the company’s revenues, while margin expansion may moderate amid rising input costs. Elsewhere, we raised our allocation and overweight exposure to Thailand by initiating a position in a major telecommunications company. We believe that the recent wave of consolidation within the Thai telecoms segment could generate value.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

Source for performance: T. Rowe Price. Fund performance is calculated using the official NAV with dividends reinvested, if any. The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up. Investors may get back less than the amount invested. It will be affected by changes in the exchange rate between the base currency of the fund and the subscription currency, if different. Sales charges (up to a maximum of 5% for the A Class), taxes and other locally applied costs have not been deducted and if applicable, they will reduce the performance figures.

Daily performance data is based on the latest available NAV.

Hedged share classes (denoted by 'h') utilise investment techniques to mitigate currency risk between the underlying investment currency(ies) of the fund and the currency of the hedged share class.  The costs of doing so will be borne by the share class and there is no guarantee that such hedging will be effective.

Attribution Data: Analysis represents the total performance of the portfolio as calculated by the FactSet attribution model and is inclusive of other assets that that will not receive a classification assignment in the detailed structure shown. Returns will not match official T. Rowe Price performance because FactSet uses different exchange rate sources and does not capture intra-day trading. Performance for each security is obtained in the local currency and, if necessary, is converted to U.S. dollars using an exchange rate determined by an independent third party. Figures are shown with gross dividends reinvested.
