You can take a look at the fund’s top 5 holdings to have an idea about their best picks for 2021.

Harding Loevner Global Equity Fund, in its Q3 2021 investor letter, mentioned Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE: BABA) and discussed its stance on the firm. Pinterest, Inc. is a Hangzhou, China-based e-commerce company with a $332.3 billion market capitalization. BABA delivered a -51.89% return since the beginning of the year, while its 12-month returns are down by -58.11%. The stock closed at $111.96 per share on December 03, 2021.

Here is what Harding Loevner Global Equity Fund has to say about Alibaba Group Holding Limited in its Q3 2021 investor letter:

"Fittingly in a quarter where the China paradox was front and center, we sold Alibaba and bought Baidu. Alibaba has withstood several rounds of regulatory change in the past, but the expanded regulatory focus now puts almost every aspect of its business in the line of fire. Smaller, faster-growing competitors such as JD.com, Meituan, and Pinduoduo have been quick to adapt to the new standards while continuing to grow their market share at Alibaba’s expense. Rivalry, in both its core e-commerce business and in new business areas such as community-based purchasing, it seems will only be getting fiercer."
