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.
These are the views of the author at the time of publication and may differ from the views of other individuals/teams at Janus Henderson Investors.

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.

The Janus Henderson Horizon Fund (the “Fund”) is a Luxembourg SICAV incorporated on 30 May 1985, managed by Henderson Management S.A. Henderson Management SA may decide to terminate the marketing arrangements of this Collective Investment Scheme in accordance with the appropriate regulation. This is a marketing communication. Please refer to the prospectus of the UCITS and to the KIID before making any final investment decisions.
Shares/Units can lose value rapidly, and typically involve higher risks than bonds or money market instruments. The value of your investment may fall as a result.
Emerging markets expose the Fund to higher volatility and greater risk of loss than developed markets; they are susceptible to adverse political and economic events, and may be less well regulated with less robust custody and settlement procedures.
The Fund may invest in China A shares via a Stock Connect programme. This may introduce additional risks including operational, regulatory, liquidy and settlement risks.
If a Fund has a high exposure to a particular country or geographical region it carries a higher level of risk than a Fund which is more broadly diversified.
This Fund may have a particularly concentrated portfolio relative to its investment universe or other funds in its sector. An adverse event impacting even a small number of holdings could create significant volatility or losses for the Fund.
The Fund may use derivatives with the aim of reducing risk or managing the portfolio more efficiently. However this introduces other risks, in particular, that a derivative counterparty may not meet its contractual obligations.
If the Fund holds assets in currencies other than the base currency of the Fund or you invest in a share/unit class of a different currency to the Fund (unless 'hedged'), the value of your investment may be impacted by changes in exchange rates.
When the Fund, or a hedged share/unit class, seeks to mitigate exchange rate movements of a currency relative to the base currency, the hedging strategy itself may create a positive or negative impact to the value of the Fund due to differences in short-term interest rates between the currencies.
Securities within the Fund could become hard to value or to sell at a desired time and price, especially in extreme market conditions when asset prices may be falling, increasing the risk of investment losses.
Some or all of the ongoing charges may be taken from capital, which may erode capital or reduce potential for capital growth.
The Fund could lose money if a counterparty with which the Fund trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations, or as a result of failure or delay in operational processes or the failure of a third party provider.
