BlackRock Emerging Markets continues to be helmed by an impressive portfolio manager, although the team instability and reduction in analytical resource over the past year bear close monitoring. While the strategy’s investment approach has been executed to good effect historically, we have ongoing concerns regarding the meaningful portfolio expansion of this US vehicle, amid fast-growing assets, which has caused a divergence from the conviction-driven, concentrated approach that has been successful in the past. The strategy’s US vehicle retains a Morningstar Medalist Rating of Bronze for the cheapest share classes, including the institutional K share class, while the more expensive share classes continue to carry a Neutral rating.
