Contrary to the rise of globalization and the commodities super cycle over the past 20 years, emerging markets now face a host of unique conditions that will help determine their attractiveness for investors.

The Janus Henderson Emerging Market Equities Team believe we have moved beyond "peak globalization" and are entering a new phase of deglobalization where investment returns will require active management, incorporating top-down country and bottom-up company analysis within a framework of both political and corporate governance.

The two pillars that drove EM returns over past decades – outsourcing and convergence – will, in the team’s view, increasingly be complemented by the emergence of innovation as a driving force of future returns.

Past performance does not predict future returns. The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount originally invested.
