Manager Commentary

Fund Managers

In their words (as of 31 May 2018)

The trust underperformed the benchmark in May, with both stock selection and asset allocation detracting. The overweight to Kroton, a leading educational services company, detracted from relative returns due to weaker-than-expected earnings guidance. Also weighing on results was our underweight exposure to Vale, the Brazilian iron ore miner, as the stock proved to be defensive, falling only 3.3% in May. On the positive side, the portfolio's position in BK Brasil, the master franchisee of Burger King, added to results. The company's share price performed well despite the truckers' strike, which reduced foot traffic to malls where many BK restaurants are located. Our underweight position in Banco Bradesco, one of the largest financial companies in the country, also added to performance. The stock fell on weak sentiment over fears that the truckers' strike would derail Brazil's nascent economic recovery. We continue to believe that emerging markets (EM) can outperform developed market equities as long as the growth and earnings outlook remains supportive and dollar rallies are contained. These supports have come into question recently, but we believe current EM weakness will prove to be an attractive buying opportunity.
