Can November’s emerging markets rebound be sustained in 2019?

Emerging markets funds led performance tables in November with Indian funds doing particularly well, as oil prices dropped.

Four out of the top five performers for the month were open-ended India-focused products including the £777m Jupiter India and £85m Neptune India funds, which were up 8% and 9% respectively.

Ben Yearsley, director at Shore Financial Planning, said this was “no surprise” as the country is a large net importer of oil, which fell from $73 to $59 at the end of November, countering inflation and going “straight into the pockets of the Indian consumer”.

Meanwhile, China and emerging markets funds also made the top ten including Ross Teverson’s £112m Jupiter China fund, which was up 8% and First State’s £5m GEM Focus fund, which made a 7.6% return.
