In their words (as of 31 Dec 2017)

The trust outperformed the benchmark, driven by positive stock selection and sector allocation. Consumer holdings fared well. Select off-benchmark A-shares were among the best performers, including Focus Media and Inner Mongolia Yili Industrial. Outside A-shares, Nexteer Automotive rose given the positive impact on its American business from the US tax cut. rose on the back of its investment in Vipshop. Healthcare holdings also helped performance. A new investment in AK Medical has outperformed since its initial public offering (IPO) during the month. Key names in financials were among the biggest contributors, including Noah and Ping An, which remain the more attractive structural growth opportunities within the sector. Concerns of weaker-than-expected smartphone demand in China and weak iPhone sales globally led to a correction in Apple supply chain stocks. China Resources Gas also negatively impacted returns, as its share price corrected due to near term policy headwinds. Our underweight in real estate was a drag on performance, as Country Garden continued its rally in December. We view recent government actions in China as positive, but also as indicative of slowing headline growth rates, both on a short-term cyclical basis and a medium-term secular basis.
