Manager Commentary

Fund Managers

Month in review

  • The trust outperformed the benchmark during November, largely on the back of positive stock selection.
  • Asian equities rose in November, outperforming global equities. Asian equities rallied ahead of the G20 meeting, helped by dovish comments from the Federal Reserve.
  • Removal of the downside risk of a Democrat sweep in the U.S. midterm elections, lower oil prices, a flattish dollar and a better outlook on U.S.-China trade talks were key positive drivers.
  • Indonesia, India and China equities underpinned the regional performance, while Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan lagged.
  • All Asian currencies strengthened, led by the Indian rupee and Indonesian rupiah, which were boosted by falling oil prices and an upturn in macro momentum.
  • By country, stock selection in China was the key contributor over the month. WuXi Biologics benefited from a broad-based recovery in the healthcare sector. Tencent also recovered after underperforming on games slowdown and capital allocation concerns, while property names such as COLI and China Vanke rose on increased expectations of a gradual relaxation of government policies and mean reversion.
  • Turning to detractors, stock selection in Korea was a headwind to performance. In particular, e-mart fell on the back of risks around slowing online sales and a delay in profitability for the business, as well as potential step-ups in convenience store investments.
  • Financials such as Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance and Shinhan Financial also underperformed.
  • At the stock level, TSMC was the largest detractor.
  • In terms of country allocation, underweight exposure to Taiwan and Malaysia, as well as an overweight position in Indonesia, contributed; however, our off-benchmark exposure to Vietnam detracted.
  • Looking ahead

  • The sharp recovery in equity markets that took place in the closing days of November seemed to support our view that a significant degree of pessimism had been priced into global equities, and that the risk in the short-term may very well be to the upside.
