... …is the rate by which the value of the Danske Invest Emerging Markets Debt Hard Currency increased in US Dollar terms in the three years to the end of August 2018, net of all fees and costs.

Looking ahead, we also believe that Emerging Markets should be part of any balanced portfolio. Indeed, we believe that Emerging Market countries will catch up much more rapidly than many investors currently expect. Firstly, people in Emerging Market countries are significantly younger than the average age of the world population and, consequently, healthier, and their access to education and knowledge continues to improve. Secondly, the environment created by government institutions in emerging countries has improved significantly, reducing the risk of financial crises. However, many investors still ignore improved governance in emerging countries – which is creating attractive investment opportunities.
