Market environment

April was a difficult month for equities and bonds due to higher-than-anticipated US inflation and persistently solid growth. This led the markets to lower their expectations of imminent rate cuts at the Federal Reserve, pushing up bond yields and pressurising share prices. The month also brought announcements of Q1 results. Although most companies beat forecasts, the markets were more willing than usual to punish those who fell short. Investors are trying to decide whether earnings growth justifies the rise in prices over the last six months. European equities have held up better than their US peers, benefitting from brighter growth prospects and a less worrisome inflation trend. However, Japanese equities underwent a correction after posting gains in each of the five previous months. The wider spread between the interest rates of Japan and other developed countries exerted downside pressure on the yen and raised concerns about the effect of imported inflation on domestic demand. Chinese equities rallied strongly, brought to life initially by government stimulus, then a slight improvement in sentiment and their particularly attractive valuations.

Performance commentary

April was a difficult month for global equities due to higher-than-expected US inflation and stable US GDP growth for Q1. This raised fears that central banks may not be ready to ease their monetary policy as previously thought. Our Fund performed weakly in both relative and absolute terms. We are underexposed to technology stocks, which worked in the Fund’s favour. The Fund’s relative misfortune resulted from our overweighting of healthcare, lack of energy exposure, and a few laggards such as Old Dominion Freight and WW Grainger in industry, and Mastercard and Brown & Brown in finance. In healthcare, Novo Nordisk and Eli Lilly in diabetes and obesity treatment, along with Italian diagnostics company DiaSorin, were among the top five contributors in April, but Veeva in healthcare technology, Straumann in dental care and Sartorius in biopharmaceutical products were among the worst performers.

Outlook strategy

Against the current macroeconomic backdrop of persistent inflation, we are remaining carefully positioned, focusing on quality family businesses of a less cyclical nature. During April, we closed our position in WuXi Biologics and reopened small positions in Dassault Systèmes and LVMH. We continue to believe that the resilience afforded by investment in quality family- and founder-owned businesses will be our strategy’s trump card.
