Manager Commentary

Fund Managers

In their words (as of 31 May 2018)

The trust outperformed the benchmark in May. Positive contributors to relative returns included stock selection in leisure goods and financial services. Detractors included stock selection in oil & gas producers and an overweight position in household goods & home construction. An overweight position in Plus500 contributed to relative returns over the month. The share price of the online trading services firm rose on the back of a very strong first-quarter trading statement, in which revenues and profits had benefited from the increased volatility in markets. The share price also appreciated on the back of the company announcing that it will move its listing from AIM to the main market later this year. Our overweight position in Keywords Studios, a service provider to the video gaming industry, was negative for relative returns. The stock drifted lower despite no fundamental news and made a small bolt-on acquisition at the end of May in line with its long-running consolidation strategy.
