Market environment

US data continues to reflect a degree of economic resilience, with inflation figures still high. However, the disinflation trend continues in Europe. In the light of this, the Fed and the ECB are sticking to their plan and will probably start cutting interest rates this summer. This backdrop of robust growth, persistent inflation and more accommodative central banks is keeping the risky asset rally alive. Stock market indices rose further in March, with global equities enjoying their longest stretch of positive monthly performances since 2021. Fortunes were fairly consistent between the various regions. Energy and materials were the best performing sectors as commodity prices climbed. Oil was up 5% to $87 a barrel (Brent), while gold set a new record of more than $2,200 an ounce. The technology and consumer sectors fared worse, even if they did end the month higher. Stock markets remain on the up because they are still expecting the Fed to cut interest rates and the economy to land softly, which is good news for corporate earnings.

Performance commentary

The Fund moved higher over March, in line with its reference indicator despite the sector rotation that occurred. The absence of energy and materials stocks could stopped the Fund from progressing, but our healthcare stocks made up the difference. Novo Nordisk, which is the Fund’s biggest position, gained 8% amid strong demand for its GLP-1, Ozempic and Wegovy drugs used to treat diabetes and obesity. Lonza also performed well. Despite the mishaps of 2023, annual results did not disappoint. The company has also acquired a large production facility from Roche, which will enable it to realise strong potential for growth in the manufacture of biological products. Quality tech stocks such as Oracle, Microsoft and SAP also had a good month. However, AMD suffered from the Chinese government’s recent decisions aimed at prioritising Chinese microchips, and Adobe Systems announced disappointing sales forecasts for the next few quarters, weighing on its share price.

Outlook strategy

We are still looking to maintain a relatively cautious stance centred on quality stocks. In recent months we have been strengthening some of our consumer staples positions such as P&G and Colgate. In the semiconductor segment, NVIDIA has been performing exceptionally well since the beginning of the year, reflecting firm demand for its products and services. Although some may consider the stock to be overpriced, we do not think the valuation is excessive given the company’s solid earnings growth. However, the share price could be volatile after the progress made of late, so we took some profits. Nvidia nonetheless remains one of our top 10 positions. The month was a fairly quiet one in terms of portfolio changes.
