In their words (as of )

The Company's share price and net asset value outperformed the benchmark in April, driven by stock selection and sector allocation. An important area of outperformance was an overweight in the healthcare sector and, more specifically, our overweight position in Fleury, a provider of diagnostic medicine. The company was up sharply on the back of strong first-quarter sales growth and steadily-increasing margins. Stock selection in consumer discretionary was another key contributor to performance in the month. Our overweight in Lojas Renner, a leading department store retailer, contributed positively. Our lack of exposure to the telecoms sector also weighed on returns as the sector outperformed in April. In the month we sold out of our position in CVC, the largest tour operator in Brazil focusing on leisure travel packages for Brazilian middle-class consumers. We recently met with the company and decided to sell out of the name due to the fact that valuations have become expensive.
