31-Dec-2021 - Ernest Yeung, Portfolio Manager,
Emerging Markets (EM) value stocks outperformed growth stocks in 2021, and this trend could continue. The portfolio is positioned to take advantage of an expanding and evolving universe of “forgotten stocks”. We expect further gains in value stocks benefitting from a pick-up in economic growth and green infrastructure spending.

Investment Objective

To increase the value of its shares, over the long term, through growth in the value of its investments. The fund invests mainly in a widely diversified portfolio of stocks of emerging market companies.

Investment Approach

  • Aim to exploit the valuation anomalies that arise across the diverse and inefficient emerging market opportunity set.
  • Employ a contrarian approach using fundamental research, quantitative screen and industry contacts to identify companies that are out of favour, undervalued and that offer an attractive risk and reward profile.
  • Minimize the risk of value traps by focusing on companies offering yield or a book value anchor to the valuation, and where we have identified re-rating thesis that can lead to an expansion in valuation over time.
  • Risk management is an integral part of the portfolio construction process.
  • Environmental, social and governance ("ESG") factors with particular focus on those considered most likely to have a material impact on the performance of the holdings or potential holdings in the funds’ portfolio are assessed. These ESG factors, which are incorporated into the investment process alongside financials, valuation, macro-economics and other factors, are components of the investment decision. Consequently, ESG factors are not the sole driver of an investment decision but are instead one of several important inputs considered during investment analysis.

31-Dec-2021 - Ernest Yeung, Portfolio Manager,
China remains our largest country holding even after we reduced our stake in a search engine company where we expect to see weak revenue growth in the near term and eliminated our position in an education sector company after the sector suffered a drastic policy change. We increased our negative bias to India by selling stakes in a finance company and a bank. Our weight in South Korea relative to the benchmark increased as we initiated a position in a leisure company, which posted an earnings turnaround.
