The phenomenal gains enjoyed by Asian emerging market equities in recent years appears to be coming an end, a change that may dampen enthusiasm among U.S. investors and advisors once keen on emerging markets.

The latest evidence of a slowdown comes from Cerulli Associates, which reveals in a new report that Asia-Pacific long-term mutual funds managed to grow only 0.6 percent in July, rising to $2.146 trillion in assets under management (AUM) from $2.134 trillion. The September report, “The Cerulli Edge — Asian Monthly Product Trends Edition,” also shows exchange-traded funds under management declining to $142.4 billion from $143.2 billion, a -0.5 percent contraction.
