Manager Commentary

Fund Managers

In their words (as of 30 Apr 2018)

The trust outperformed the benchmark in April. Stock selection in the energy sector contributed, specifically led by our exposure to index heavyweight Rosneft, an integrated energy company, as shares rose on the announcement of a 50% net income payout to shareholders. Stock selection in the telecommunications sector also added to relative returns, most notably driven by lack of exposure to Mobile TeleSystems, the largest mobile operator in Russia. Meanwhile, our lack of exposure to Magnit, Russia's largest food retailer, weighed on relative returns as the stock outperformed, with first-quarter 2018 results that beat analysts' expectations. We will remain underweight in this name and will revisit our decision once the restructuring period for the company is complete. Stock selection in the materials sector also struggled, primarily due to our exposure to Rusal, targeted by the new US sanctions. We sold our position to comply with the requirement for investors to divest of all assets related to the company by May 7th. Despite a pickup in volatility, emerging markets stocks have outperformed their developed market counterparts in the year-to-date. The dollar and growth trends in place justify this rotation in leadership, in our view, but we must remind investors that bumps in the road are inevitable.
