At Templeton Emerging Markets Group, we believe emerging market (EM) small-capitalization (small-cap) stocks represent an attractive proposition in the current investment climate. However, there are some common misconceptions regarding the asset class that conceal key strengths we believe an active manager could capitalize on. Here, I join my colleagues Stephen Dover, chief investment officer of Templeton Emerging Markets Group, and Chetan Sehgal, director of Global Emerging Markets/Small-Cap Strategies, to talk about investing in this space.

'A genuinely disturbing place': England's spookiest sites inspire new ghost stories from top writers
The likes of Jeanette Winterson, Mark Haddon and Sarah Perry have penned dark tales of ancient houses and hauntings, spanning the country from Audley End in Essex to York Cold War BunkerBeneath Dover Castle, an imposing Gothic bulk atop the chalk hills of the English port, is a labyrinth of tunnels. Dug in the 18th century for troops garrisoned there as a first line of defence against revolutionary France, the tunnels have recently developed a ghostly reputation.Once a month, English Heritage, which manages the site, evacuates the tunnels for staff to perform sweeps, searching for any of the mysterious figures that tourists have reported seeing. In one report, a heavy door slammed shut and a stretcher trolley, part of a wartime exhibit, raced along the corridor as if pushed by a violent force.

With its tales of terrifying journeys and hopeless days, a storytelling project is putting flesh on the statistics. We should be all be outraged• Hugh Muir is associate editor of Guardian OpinionIn our interconnected world, it is such a truism that everyone has a story to tell that we rarely ask to hear them.

We might start with The Student’s Tale, about the young man studying epidemiology who is detained in Britain, having survived a perilous journey from Africa, menaced by the knives and guns of people smugglers. He had been forced to flee his village, having been denounced as an apostate.Or The Lorry Driver’s Tale, the account of a trucker who travels from Calais to Dover and, seeing the misery and desperation of the migrants who dot his path, occasionally brings one across to a new life. The Witness’s Tale: the fortunes of a man falsely accused in his home country of being a terrorist, who makes it to Britain, helps the state convict a gang of murderous, brutal people smugglers, and is told that his reward is to be deportation back to a likely death. Perhaps The Abandoned Person’s Tale, the recollection of a youth rounded up in his homeland during a crackdown on student protests, who spends three years in detention here before eventual release. Each tale vastly different; each illuminating a system that should deal humanely on our behalf with the many people who arrive here seeking refuge, sanctuary and a better life, but which every day fails to deliver.
