India - Robust growth in an uncertain world

India remains standout overweight. We increase our overweight stance on Indian equities and as our most-preferred emerging market. We expect outperformance to continue, with India starting to show a material breakout in relative EPS versus EM and having relatively low correlation/revenue from both the US and China.
