Emerging market resilience points to opportunities

Many emerging markets are bucking an historic trend. Rather than staggering to the brink of financial instability as economic growth in the US and Europe slows, some look reasonably resilient thanks to China’s reopening economy, a weakening US dollar and slowing inflation. For international investors, that makes select emerging financial assets worth watching.

Over the past three years, the pandemic affected every economy, but not equally. As Covid’s public health impacts eased in 2022, war in Ukraine and rising demand for goods and services triggered rising food and energy prices. These pressures were exacerbated by the slow Chinese economic growth. The result was especially painful for economies from Latin America to Africa and Asia, where food and fuel make up a larger share of household spending than most developed countries. As a strengthening US dollar intensified the inflationary pressures on emerging exporters, central banks everywhere responded with higher interest rates.

Fidelity Emerging Markets Limited (LON:FEML) is an investment trust that aims to achieve long-term capital growth from an actively managed portfolio made up primarily of securities and financial instruments providing exposure to emerging markets companies, both listed and unlisted.
