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.
