TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Among the least fashionable areas today are the emerging markets, so today we recommend an investment trust with a long and successful record in this sector that nevertheless trades at a double-digit discount.

Genesis, which listed in 1989, is among the more conservatively managed emerging markets trusts. It has ignored the vogue for “concentrated” portfolios, which take big bets on a small number of stocks or, in the case of emerging market funds, individual countries. Instead it has 126 holdings, spread across 35 countries.
