In their words (as of )

The Company's share price and net asset value outperformed the benchmark in March. The top performers in the month included Italian logistics solutions provider Datalogic, which published a positive growth outlook for 2017, and German truck and trailer components manufacturer SAF-Holland, as management issued better-than-expected guidance for the year ahead. Italian high pressure pumps producer Interpump was also among the top contributors, as the stock continued to outperform following the announcement of strong organic growth in the fourth quarter of 2016. Detractors from performance included Norwegian digital bank Skandiabanken, due to profit taking, and Norwegian oil services provider TGS Nopec, as a result of general sector weakness caused by uncertainty around the outlook for the oil price. French market research company Ipsos also detracted following an unexpected slowdown in organic growth.
