“Emerging markets remain in a much better position…but it is important to monitor where value is developing”

– explains the role of major policy decisions in driving performance dispersion across emerging markets

– highlights the key markets which are in fundamentally better shape; and 

– sets out the team’s rationale for key country-level overweight and underweight positions
