Manager Commentary

Fund Managers

Month in review

  • The Global Growth & Income Investment Trust outperformed its benchmark in September.
  • Outperformance can be attributed to stock selection in the banks and insurance sectors.
  • At the stock level, the leading contributor was Russian financial group Sberbank. Russian equities rallied this month owing to the strengthening of the ruble, with Sberbank being a key beneficiary.
  • The sectors that detracted from returns included consumer staples and technology – semi & hardware.
  • German semiconductor manufacturer Infineon was the leading detractor this month, primarily down to a profit warning from one of its largest customers, Continental, and signs of a weakening in demand.
  • At the regional level, stock selection in North America and emerging markets contributed the most, whilst stock selection in Europe excluding the UK was the leading detractor.
  • Looking ahead

  • After the very strong start to the year, we have seen a divergence in global equity returns.
  • The US has continued to outperform versus the rest of the world and the gap between the most expensive and cheapest stocks in the market, within both sectors and countries, is reaching historical extremes.
  • Economic growth remains broad-based around the world, which should support earnings globally; however, the economic momentum has certainly slowed from the highs witnessed in 2017, especially outside the US.
  • Over the shorter-term, markets will be following the trade disputes very closely. A full-blown trade war would be a major reversal of the trend toward globalisation that has underpinned markets for decades, and could have severe consequences.
  • The key question for the rest of this economic cycle remains the interplay between inflation, bond yields and the gradual reduction in monetary stimulus and how this will impact the economy, the shape of the yield curve and equity markets.
  • For the moment however, a healthy environment for the global economy and corporate profits plus reasonable valuations will keep driving equity markets forward.
