Commentary

Performance as at Q1 2024 - MSCI Emerging Markets (EM) fully recovered from January weakness, gaining +2.4% in Q1 although still lagging Developing Markets (DM) (+9.0%) by a decent margin. Positive inflation dynamics and resilient growth in the US led to more muted optimism for early easing, whilst Artificial Intelligence (AI) optimism drove tech heavy markets. EM Asia (+2.4%) was the best performing region, driven by strong returns out of North Asia. Korea (+1.7%) saw decent foreign inflows on strong hopes surrounding the government's corporate Value-Up program. AI optimism was fuelled by strong Nvidia guidance, driving further upside across IT names, helping Taiwan to gain (+12.1%). China (-2.1%) was weaker as economic concerns continued to dominate. India (+6.2%) continues to be an outperformer on building economic confidence and strong earnings reports. Europe Middle East and Africa (EMEA) finished Q1 up +1.1%, with high degrees of dispersion across the region. Saudi Arabia was a net winner with very strong performance from the small and mid-cap space and expectations that OPEC+ voluntary production cuts would extend, supporting the oil price. Central Europe continues to print decent returns with Poland and Greece outpacing the region. On the other hand, South Africa pulled back as equities remain under pressure from a stronger US dollar and rising election uncertainty. Egypt was the worst performing market across Emerging Markets. Latin America lagged. Brazil was the major driver of muted returns on softer economic data. However, other countries posted positive returns. Peru was the best, followed by Colombia and Argentina. Mexico was flat.

Important Information

Because of changes in exchange rates the value of your investment, as well as any money you take from it, can go down as well as up.

Some funds may invest in ‘underlying’ funds or other investment vehicles. The performance of our fund, compared to what it’s invested in won’t be exactly the same. That can be due to additional charges, cash management (needed to help people to enter and leave our fund when they want), tax and the timing of investments (this is known as a fund’s dealing cycle, it varies between managers and can be several days).

Fund Specific Risks

Emerging Markets

The fund invests in emerging markets. Generally less well regulated than the UK. There is an increased chance of political and economic instability with less reliable custody, dealing and settlement arrangements. The market(s) can be less liquid. If a fund investing in markets is affected by currency exchange rates, the investment could either increase or decrease. These investments therefore carry more risk.

Value of Investments

The value of investments, and any income can fall, as well as rise, so you could get back less than you invested. Neither capital nor income is guaranteed.

Investments Long Term

Investments should be regarded as long term and are not suitable for money which may be needed in the short term, you should always have a sufficient cash reserve.

Exchange Rate

This fund invests in securities outside the UK. The value of investments and any income from them may therefore decrease or increase as a result of changes in exchange rates between currencies.

Important Information

Because of changes in exchange rates the value of your investment, as well as any money you take from it, can go down as well as up.

Some funds may invest in ‘underlying’ funds or other investment vehicles. The performance of our fund, compared to what it’s invested in won’t be exactly the same. That can be due to additional charges, cash management (needed to help people to enter and leave our fund when they want), tax and the timing of investments (this is known as a fund’s dealing cycle, it varies between managers and can be several days).

These risk ratings have been developed by Prudential to help provide an indication of a fund’s potential level of risk and reward based on the type of assets which may be held by the fund. Other companies may use different descriptions and as such these risk ratings should not be considered as generic across the fund management industry.

We regularly review our fund risk ratings, so they may change in the future. If, in our view, there is a material change in the fund's level of risk, for example due to a significant change to the assets held by the fund or in the way the fund is managed, we will provide information on the new risk rating. We recommend that you make sure you understand the risk rating of any fund before you invest.

Important Information

Because of changes in exchange rates the value of your investment, as well as any money you take from it, can go down as well as up.

Some funds may invest in ‘underlying’ funds or other investment vehicles. The performance of our fund, compared to what it’s invested in won’t be exactly the same. That can be due to additional charges, cash management (needed to help people to enter and leave our fund when they want), tax and the timing of investments (this is known as a fund’s dealing cycle, it varies between managers and can be several days).
