  • The Fund outperformed the index in February, a month dominated by the coronavirus-driven market correction.
  • Our relative outperformance was mainly because the primary market trends have remained intact despite the sell-off (’growth’ over ’value’, ‘quality’ over ‘cyclicals’).

Past performance is no guarantee of future performance. The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Investing in companies in emerging markets involves higher risk than investing in established economies or securities markets. Emerging Markets may have less stable legal and political systems, which could affect the safe-keeping or value of assets.
