Emerging Markets have had a strong year and outperformed developed markets over the course of it. So it looks like there has been a ‘great escape’ from our Emerging Markets kennel in this edition, as our residents have decreased from four to one.

The value of investments, and the income derived from them, can go down as well as up and you can get back less than you originally invested. Underlying investments in emerging markets are generally less well regulated than the UK. There is an increased chance of political and economic instability with less reliable custody, dealing and settlement arrangements. The market(s) can be less liquid. If a fund investing in markets is affected by currency exchange rates, the investment could both increase or decrease. These investments therefore carry more risk. The chart shown is for illustrative purposes only and based on quarterly figures. Please note past performance is not a reliable indication of future returns. Full past performance data and selection methodology can be found in the "Spot the Dog" guide and in the "Our top-rated funds" guide. This should not be considered advice.
