Emerging Markets – February 2020 Review
From the North of South Capital team

During a volatile February, the fund slightly lagged the MSCI Emerging Markets index. Having been ahead of the index for most of the month, we saw a selloff in some of our key markets during the final days.

Additionally, the explosive spread of Coronavirus in South Korea via a religious sect caused that market to underperform.

Latest Emerging Market Viewpoints
From the North of South Capital team

For the last few years, the world has been bracing itself for the IPO of what would surely become the largest listed corporation in the world. This was not going to be a high-growth technology stock and it wasn’t based in any of the world’s largest economies such as the US or China. It would be a distinctly old fashioned resource company, in the business of extracting oil.

The hunt for yield is back
Over the past nine months the world has changed dramatically. Towards the end of last summer, US 10 year bond yields were at 3.2% - levels almost recognizable to someone from a time before QE and ZIRP. German 10 year bond yields were low but clearly positive. Emerging markets were responding in ways that reflected their fundamental strengths and weaknesses – a collapse in Turkey and Argentina, steadily rising yields elsewhere. Normalization of interest rate policy was expected and asset prices were going to reflect this.
