In their words (as of )

The Company's share price and net asset value outperformed the benchmark, led by stock selection. In consumer staples, our lack of exposure to BRF, a large food conglomerate, added to relative returns. The stock underperformed following its move to spend USD 245 million to acquire 80% of Banvit, a Turkish poultry company. Our lack of exposure to Petrobras (energy), which was a top detractor in 2016, added to performance as the stock sold-off following a fall in the oil price. On the negative side, our underweight position in materials detracted. Vale once again performed well as the price of iron ore remained resilient. Elsewhere in materials, our exposure to Suzano detracted. In January we added to our position in Cielo, a leading payment system operator. The stock de-rated on the back of fears that a more stringent regulatory environment would be negative for profits. Given current valuations and our reassessment of the investment case, we viewed the recent price weakness as a buying opportunity.
