After a decade of underperformance relative to US stocks, emerging-market (EM) stocks have been overlooked by many investors. Based on the shift to an above-trend global inflationary regime, current apathy built into prices, and historical diversification benefits, we believe EM stocks may be poised for a renaissance.
Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. • Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than US investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political, economic and regulatory developments. These risks may be greater, and include additional risks, for investments in emerging markets. • Different investment styles may go in and out of favor, which may cause underperformance to the broader stock market. • Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market.
