Pursuing Lasting Progress in Emerging Markets

Seafarer Overseas Growth and Income Fund

Portfolio Briefing

– Daniel Duncan and Andrew Foster discuss the losses in the emerging markets and the Growth and Income Fund during the fourth quarter. Andrew notes that the Fund’s losses were spurred by the performance of certain emerging market currencies in the aftermath of the U.S. presidential election. Andrew reiterates his concerns regarding financial liquidity in China, noting that current conditions might induce volatility in the coming year. Lastly, he explains that the Fund continues to hold Samsung Electronics, a holding that has recently faced a crisis, based on the security’s underlying fundamentals.
