Manager Commentary

Fund Managers

Month in review

  • The Global Growth & Income Investment Trust underperformed its benchmark, the MSCI World Index, in October.
  • In a difficult month for equity markets, the underperformance can be attributed to stock selection in the basic industries, technology – semi & hardware and insurance sectors.
  • Our holding in NVIDIA, the U.S. computer chip manufacturer, detracted from performance. Despite a lack of fundamental news, the stock fell around 30% as investors moved to more defensive sectors amid concerns of stretched valuations in the U.S. technology sector.
  • Positive contribution to performance came from stock selection in the technology – software and automobiles & auto parts sectors.
  • The leading contributor at the stock level was the Brazilian clothing retailer Lojas Renner. Brazilian stocks jumped to their highest point on record following the decisive Presidential election victory of Jair Bolsonaro.
  • At the regional level, stock selection in emerging markets contributed the most whilst stock selection in the UK and North America both detracted from returns.
  • Looking ahead

  • Equity markets have sold off sharply for the second time this year, raising concerns that we are approaching the end of one of the longest bull markets in history.
  • However, we continue to see sufficient growth in profits to keep markets going in the face of higher interest rates, and after the latest setback, valuations in many places look quite attractive.
  • Investors will be monitoring trade and tariffs and the effects on corporate earnings and the euro area economy. Investors will also be following developments in China closely and the efforts of the government to stabilise economic growth.
  • The gap between the most expensive and cheapest stocks in the market, within both sectors and countries, continues to be at historical extremes.
  • While this does not suggest investors make a call on buying value, it is a message that should not be ignored.
