Market Overview

Emerging markets experienced some volatility in the earlier part of the quarter as the on-going European debt crisis and the US presidential elections in early November led markets to pause after a strong performance in September. Markets traded within a narrow range until they started to recover in mid-November as the effects of monetary easing programmes implemented by governments globally filtered through and financial markets became awash with liquidity. Improving data from China, including declining inflation and better export growth, also helped boost investor confidence, sending equity prices generally higher for the rest of the quarter.

Markets overcame initial concerns about the "fiscal cliff," a US$600 billion mix of automatic tax increases and spending cuts scheduled to take effect on January 1, 2013, to end the quarter with a gain. As a result, global markets were stronger in December, compensating for a relatively weaker October and November. Between 30 September and 31 December 2012, the net asset value of the Company increased by 6.9% to 644.2 pence. The Investment Manager (Templeton Asset Management Limited) continues to see emerging markets benefiting from relatively good growth prospects, attractive valuations and solid fundamentals and will continue to monitor the markets for favourable investment opportunities.

 

Investment Outlook

Events in the developed economies of the US, Eurozone, and Japan this year will continue to impact the global economy at large, but the degree and magnitude of the action and reaction is shifting. Emerging markets, for instance, are lessening their trade dependence on the US and Europe, and there are other countries such as China which can drive global growth. In addition, a likely continuation of easy monetary policies in developed markets this year could result in more fund flows into global equity markets, including emerging markets.

 

As we see it, emerging markets in general have three characteristics in their favour: generally high economic growth rates, large amounts of foreign reserves and low foreign debt. Many emerging economies are on the cusp of consumer booms as well as productivity advances, which should bode well for future growth. As long-term investors, we believe the global outlook holds promise, despite debt problems plaguing the US and Eurozone.

Portfolio Changes and Positioning  

30 September 2012 - 31 December 2012

The Investment Manager takes a long-term view of the investments they make, evaluating a company's potential for earnings and growth over a five-year horizon.

The Investment Manager reports the following principal changes in the portfolio:

 

Purchases (total value £5.4m)

PTT Exploration and Production Public Co. Ltd, fgn. (Existing holding) - TEMIT purchased a further 1,893,505 shares in PTT during this reporting period through a preferential public offering to enable PTT to finance its aggressive overseas expansion, which included the acquisition of Cove Energy, an oil & gas exploration and production company.

 

Sales

There were no portfolio sales during the three month period to 31 December 2012.

Investment Style

·     The Investment Manager and his group use in-depth company research to find securities in any emerging market country or industry sector, regardless of company size, that they believe are undervalued by the market, but have the potential to increase in value over time.

·     Templeton Emerging Markets Investment Trust PLC (TEMIT) is actively managed, aiming to invest in those securities that the Investment Manager believes have the best potential to grow in value over a five year period. Although performance is measured against the MSCI Emerging Markets Index for reporting purposes, there is no requirement for the Investment Manager to invest in the same companies or in the same amount as the index. TEMIT's performance or portfolio positioning may therefore be very different to the index.

·     TEMIT invests in emerging markets; these markets can experience significant and sudden changes in price and can carry a higher degree of risk than developed markets. An investment in TEMIT should be considered as long-term.

Investment Manager and Group

Mark Mobius, Ph.D., Executive Chairman, Templeton Emerging Markets Group.

The Templeton Emerging Markets Group is one of the pioneers of emerging market investing. Established in 1987, the Group has over 25 years of experience and now manages £31.4 billion in emerging markets assets for retail, institutional and professional investors across the globe (as at 31/12/12).

The Templeton Emerging Markets Group is one of the largest of its kind and has a presence in 18 offices around the world.

The Group includes 53 dedicated emerging markets portfolio managers, analysts and product specialists; senior members of the Group include Allan Lam, Tom Wu and Dennis Lim. Together on average, each of the Group's investment professionals has over 12 years of relevant industry experience, and has been with the company for over 8 years. Between them, the group speak 27 different languages and dialects (as at 31/12/12).

 

Investor Suitability

TEMIT may be appropriate for investors who want to invest in emerging markets and are willing to take some risk for the potential of strong capital growth over the long term.

 

Emerging market companies can be more volatile than developed markets and an investment in TEMIT could occasionally change in value significantly over the short-term. Shareholders in TEMIT should therefore consider it as a long-term financial commitment.

 

Please refer to the latest annual report for more details of the risks associated with an investment in TEMIT.

Glossary of Terms

Alpha - Alpha measures the difference between a portfolio's actual returns and its expected performance, given its level of risk (as measured by beta). A positive alpha means that the portfolio has over performed, a negative alpha means the portfolio has under performed; for example, an alpha of 1.0 means the portfolio outperformed the market 1.0%.

Beta - Beta is a measure of a portfolio's sensitivity to market movements. It measures the relationship between a portfolio's excess return over an investment in a risk-free investment such as cash and the excess return of the benchmark index. For TEMIT, this is the Investment Trusts Global Emerging Markets Universe. By definition, the beta of the benchmark (in this case, an index) is 1.00. Accordingly, a portfolio with a 1.10 beta has performed 10% better (after deducting the cash rate) than the index in up markets and 10% worse in down markets, assuming all other factors remain constant. A portfolio with a high beta will tend to move more than the benchmark, a portfolio with a low beta will tend to move less.

Contributor - The amount an individual stock, country or sector has added to the performance of the entire portfolio for a given period.

Cumulative Performance - The percentage increase or decrease of a portfolio's share price or NAV over a given time period, with net income (dividends) reinvested. The fund's performance is usually benchmarked against either a relevant index or sector.

Detractor - The amount an individual stock, country or sector has subtracted from the performance of the entire portfolio for a given period.

Discrete Annual Performance - The percentage increase or decrease of a portfolio's share price or NAV over a complete 12 month period, with net income (dividends) reinvested. The fund's performance is usually benchmarked against either a relevant index or sector.

Dividend Yield - The yield a company pays out to its shareholders in the form of dividends. It is calculated by the dividends paid per share over a year divided by the stock's price. For a vehicle like TEMIT, which invests in a number of companies, this figure represents the weighted average annual dividend paid by all of the companies in which it invests. Because of share types, fees and other considerations, the dividend yield quoted here should not be used as an indication of the income to be received from this portfolio.

Downside Risk - Downside risk is a measurement which only considers negative returns. It is calculated as a downside deviation of returns below the Risk Free Rate (this is the amount a manager could expect to receive by investing in a "risk free" asset, such as with a cash deposit).

Gearing - Gearing (sometimes described as leverage)- a term used to describe the process of borrowing money for investment purposes in the expectation that the returns on the investments purchased using the borrowings exceeds the costs of those borrowings. It illustrates the effect that current prior charges may have on the value of the shareholder funds if the total assets were to rise or fall. A figure of 115 means that the shareholder funds are 15% geared and indicates the extra amount by which the shareholder funds would rise or fall if the total assets were to rise or fall. A figure of 100 means there is no gearing.

Information Ratio - This ratio divides the annualised average return for the portfolio by the Tracking Error (Relative). The higher the ratio, the better, as it reflects the extent to which a portfolio has outperformed the benchmark.

Market Capitalisation - The total market value of a company's shares. For a vehicle like TEMIT, which invests in a number of companies, this is calculated by the share price on a certain date multiplied by the number of shares in issue.

Market Cap (average) - The weighted average of all the companies in which it invests.

Maximum Gain - The best possible investment period in the period analysed. This includes temporary down periods.

Maximum Loss - The worst possible investment period in the period analysed. This includes temporary up periods.

NAV - Net Asset Value, or the total value of the portfolio at any one time, including all shares and cash, divided by the number of shares in issue.

Ongoing Charges Ratio ("OCR")- From the year ending 31 March 2012, the Ongoing Charges Ratio ("OCR") replaces the Total Expense Ratio. Prior year numbers have not been restated as the ratios are not materially different. The OCR represents the annualised ongoing charges of the Company divided by the average daily net asset values of the Company for the year, and has been prepared in accordance with the AIC's recommended methodology.

Portfolio Turnover Rate - The frequency with which assets within a portfolio are bought and sold by the manager. Portfolio turnover is calculated by taking either the total amount of new securities purchased or the amount of securities sold - whichever is less - over a particular period, divided by the total Net Asset Value (NAV) of the portfolio. The measurement for a 12-month time period. 

Positive & Negative Periods - This shows how many positive/negative months returns that a portfolio experiences across a period.

Price to Book (P/B) - The price per share of a stock divided by its book value (i.e. net worth) per share. For a portfolio, the ratio is the weighted harmonic average price/book ratio of the stocks it holds.

Price to Cash Flow (P/CF) - Supplements price/earnings ratio as a measure of relative value; it represents a weighted harmonic average of the price/cash flow ratios for the underlying portfolio holdings.

Price to Earnings (P/E) - The share price of a stock, divided by its per-share earnings over the past year. For a portfolio, it is the weighted harmonic average P/E ratio of the stocks in the portfolio. P/E is a good indicator of market expectations about a company's prospects; the higher the P/E, the greater the expectations for a company's future growth in earnings.

R2 - R2 or R squared, is an indication of how closely aligned the portfolio and the benchmark index are. R2 ranges between 0 and 1, with 0 indicating a lot of difference and 1 indicating a perfect match. A value of 0.7 and upwards generally suggests that a portfolio's performance is very closely linked to the performance of the benchmark index.

Share Price - The cost of a unit of ownership in a company as purchased through the stock exchange.

Sharpe Ratio - Sharpe Ratio judges whether the relationship between a portfolio's risk and its return is good or bad. The underlying assumption is that a portfolio manager could invest in a riskless asset (such as cash), therefore the return of the risk free asset is deducted from the annualised average return. This net return is then divided by the total risk (annualised volatility). The higher the ratio the better the return for investors for the risk taken.

Total Net Assets - The total value of a company's shares. For a vehicle like TEMIT, which invests in a number of companies, this is calculated by the Net Asset Value (NAV) on a certain date multiplied by the number of shares in issue.

Tracking Error (Relative) - Tracking Error (Relative) measures how much the return of the portfolio deviates from the benchmark index. The lower the tracking error of the portfolio, the more it resembles the benchmark in terms of risk and return characteristics.

Trust - A Trust, or Investment Trust, is a closed ended vehicle investing in a wide variety of underlying investments. Investment Trusts are traded in exactly the same way as any other equity on the London Stock Exchange. The price at which they are traded (share price) depends on the demand for the shares in the investment trust and is often at a variance with the value of their underlying holdings (or NAV).

Volatility - This is a statistical measure of the amount of movement in the price of a share or portfolio over a given period of time. If a portfolio's share price hardly moves over time, it is said to have a low volatility. Volatility is a simple measure of the consistency of returns.

The performance of the index does not include the deduction of expenses and does not represent the performance of any Franklin Templeton fund. The indices include a greater number of securities than those held in the portfolio.

Due to data limitations all equity holdings are assumed to be the primary equity issue (usually the ordinary or common shares) of each security's issuing company. This methodology may cause small differences between portfolio's reported characteristics and the portfolio's actual characteristics. In practice, Franklin Templeton's portfolio managers invest in the class or type of security which they believe is most appropriate at the time of purchase. The market capitalisation figures for both the portfolio and the benchmark are at the security level, not aggregated up to the main issuer. The dividend yield quoted here should not be used as an indication of the income to be received from this portfolio.

When comparing the performance of TEMIT with the benchmark index, it is important to note that the securities in which TEMIT invests may be substantially different than those represented by the benchmark index. Furthermore, an investment in TEMIT represents an investment in a managed investment company in which certain charges and expenses, including management fees, are applicable. These charges and expenses are not applicable to indices. Lastly, please note that indices are unmanaged and are not available for direct investment. Certain data and other information shown have been supplied by outside sources. While we consider that information to be reliable, we give no assurance that such data and information is accurate or complete.
