In summary:

• Looking at longer-term fundamentals, there are a lot of reasons to be somewhat more optimistic.

• Emerging markets will account for 60-70% of global growth for the foreseeable future.

• Countries such as India and China are growing in excess of 6%. Their combined population of 2.5 billion people are getting richer and consuming more, having a dramatic impact on global trade patterns.

• As a result of the selloff in these markets and their underperformance, valuations are increasingly supportive.
