#Latin America offers the best investment proposition anywhere in the world


Sam Brodbeck | sept 2016 | The Telegraph |

After half a decade in the wilderness emerging markets are bouncing back – and experts expect Latin America to lead the charge.

The emerging markets, which include the likes of Russia, India, South Africa and Poland, have been battered since 2010 by falling demand for raw materials and a strong dollar. But they have rebounded since the start of the year: one key measure, the MSCI Emerging Markets index, has risen by 27.4pc, compared with a 9.2pc rise in the FTSE 100.

Ashmore, a specialist emerging market investment firm, has said “today Latin America offers the best investment proposition of any region in the world”. Is this the view of other investment experts and, if so, how can investors get a piece of the action?

Why the lost years?

Emerging markets rely heavily on demand for commodities, so the slowdown in the growth of the Chinese economy hit hard. The consequent decline in the price of raw materials hurt countries such as Brazil, a large exporter of oil.

At the same time the US dollar has been strong as the result of rising interest rates. Again, emerging markets suffer as key exports are made more expensive, and governments and companies pay more to service dollar-denominated debts.

Russ Mould, investment director at the fund shop AJ Bell, said: “Latin American was an absolute horror show between 2010 and 2015. The bursting of the commodities bubble has been a major problem – copper is huge for Chile, oil and iron for Brazil – and the wealth that was generated arguably wasn’t spent wisely by some of the Left-leaning governments of the time.”

The bounce back

But Mr Mould argued that rising commodity prices and a stabilising political environment should see Latin American countries outpace their emerging market rivals.

He said: “Oil is up substantially from its lows, as is iron ore. On political reform, Brazil is promising market-leaning changes and Argentina is finally coming in from the cold. In Mexico there is still hope that President Nieto can deliver. You still have more radical figures in Bolivia and Venezuela, but progress is being made.

“Latin America is coming back towards the centre and stock markets tend to favour Right-wing orthodoxy when it comes to economic policy.”

Ilan Furman, who manages Columbia Threadneedle’s Latin American fund, agreed, adding that the impeachment of the Brazilian president, Dilma Rousseff, this week, while it might be seen as a worrying sign of a country in turmoil, was actually a positive move likely to boost the economy.

How can investors access the market?

As always investors have a choice of active or passive funds, which aim simply to track a stock market index. In theory active managers should prosper in a region such as Latin America where markets are less efficient than their Western counterparts.

Given emerging markets’ volatility, savers are advised to remain invested for the long term. In terms of how much to allocate to the region, emerging markets make up 10pc of the MSCI World index so allocating the same proportion could be a handy rule of thumb.

The Stewart Investors Latin America fund, managed by Tom Prew, comes top for returns over the past few years, earning investors an impressive 50.6pc over the past 12 months. It has ongoing charges of 1.19pc a year.

For comparison, iShares’ Latin America UCITS ETF tracks the MSCI emerging market index and has returned 49.6pc since the beginning of the year charging investors 0.74pc a year.

However, Laith Khalaf, a senior analyst at the fund broker Hargreaves Lansdown, warned tentative investors to begin with funds that offer broader exposure. “Emerging markets go through growth spurts at different times – sometimes Latin America will be the jewel in the crown, but more recently it has been India,” he said.

“For most people you need a general global emerging markets fund as a starting point. But if you have lots of money and a well-diversified portfolio you might want to start diving down to individual regions and countries.”

He picked out the JP Morgan Emerging Markets fund, which charges 1.18pc a year, as a starting point, or the Aberdeen Latin America Equity fund (1.28pc a year) for more targeted investments.

Mr Mould recommended BlackRock’s Latin American investment trust, managed by Will Landers. He said the 1.12pc charge was “not the cheapest” but praised Mr Landers’ experience and said the investment trust structure “means he can be patient”.
