EM Equities: Pick Your Spots

Second Quarter 
By Vera Trojan

Adapting emerging markets investments during COVID-19.

From our sub-adviser, Wellington Management
Vera Trojann
CFA, Equity Portfolio Manager


Recent price-to-book (P/B) ratios relative to history underscore how wide the performance dispersion within emerging markets (EM) has become amid the COVID-19 crisis (Figure 1). Looking ahead, I expect this trend to persist and perhaps accelerate.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies.
