ESG in emerging markets has room to mature

As sustainability-minded equity investors are looking beyond their home turf, the global importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards is rising. But while their significance is relatively high in the “west”, emerging-markets companies have some catching up to, according to Lara Kesterton, Vontobel’s Head of mtx ESG Research.

Time’s up for US-listed Chinese companies

The ongoing trade war and eroding U.S.-China relationship have been a catalyst for making it less attractive for Chinese companies to seek a public listing in the United States. The Chinese government is finally making good on promises to open up domestic markets to foreign investors. Additionally, Hong Kong and China are taking steps to make local listings more attractive, especially to high-tech start-ups.

Beating Frustration in the Emerging Markets

Emerging markets can be frustrating for investors – epidemics, scandals, inflation, deficits, and natural disasters. There is huge potential and risk in the EM.

The EM perspective

The past weekend gave investors a pause to reflect on what has been the worst week in terms of price performance for many equity indices since the global financial crisis in 2008. For example, the S&P 500 lost 11.5% on Friday’s close, compared a week before. Emerging markets equity investors were also strongly impacted, as the MSCI EM lost 7.3% over that period.

Emerging-market equities: semiconductor outlook in the year of the rat

We are cautiously optimistic for emerging-market equities in 2020. In the Chinese zodiac, the quick-witted rat is succeeding the clumsy pig, which in 2019 struggled with an American bull. With China and the US now apparently unlocking horns, things should get easier. Meanwhile, the outlook for Asian semiconductor companies remains solid.

Emerging markets: focus on stocks, not the market, as you enter the fourth quarter

The US-Chinese trade conflict has become a global worry, but the issue is sometimes blown out of proportion. While emerging-market investors take cover from trans-Pacific gales and local Asian thunderstorms, we stay the course. As stock pickers, we suggest three “gos”: go domestic, go stock-specific, and go cheap.
