Performance explanation

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundInvestmentExplanations.date,'llll') ]}}

Based on transaction prices, the fund's return was -4.41%. Our Digital Consumption trend made a neutral contribution last month. We consider this to be a promising sign for the months to come. Shares of chip maker Advanced Micro Devices rose after it once again reported a stellar set of numbers. Shares of Airbnb were among the largest losers in our portfolio. Our Emerging Middle Class trend made a negative contribution last month. Brazilian e-tailer MercadoLibre reported a strong set of numbers. Our investment in Hindustan Lever has been a bit of a bright spot this year. Even though the shares are only about flat for the year, from a relative perspective it has been one of the top gainers. Our Health & Wellbeing trend made a negative contribution last month. Shares of apparel retailer Lululemon dropped. Sentiment in retail was especially weak after general merchandise retailers Walmart and Target issued stark warnings in which they mentioned that consumers were pulling back in discretionary categories like apparel.

Market development

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundInvestmentExplanations.date,'llll') ]}}

Global stocks were mixed, with US stocks recovering strongly towards the end of the month. Consumer and technology stocks were again among the weakest sectors. Although we are seeing early signs of a bottom in some of the most beaten-down stocks. The reason we are citing that the bottoming process is underway is the positive investor response to earnings warnings. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index was unchanged last month, led by a surge in energy stocks. The tech-heavy Nasdaq dropped, as growth stocks continued to underperform before staging a comeback in the final days of the month. European stocks in the FTSE Eurotop 100 Index dropped as well. Japanese stocks rose, as Japan remains among the best-performing major markets. Although this strength partly comes off the back of a weak yen. Emerging markets stocks posted the first monthly gain of the year.

Expectation of fund manager

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundFacts.date,'llll') ]}}

Central bank actions and low interest rates have long boosted investor demand for quality growth companies. We won't deny that the current regime of rising interest rates presents a more challenging environment for companies with high long-term growth potential. Going forward, increasing interest rates and persistently high levels of inflation may continue to lead to above average levels of volatility. Importantly, this does not alter our belief that investors should focus on high-quality businesses with valuable intangible assets, low capital intensity, high margins and superior returns on capital. These companies have historically delivered above-average returns, while offering downside protection in volatile market environments. We believe that the above-average valuations (yet already significantly corrected) for these businesses are justified given the quality of their business models, the high levels of earnings growth and the sustainability of their franchises. We continue to have a positive long-term outlook for our investments.
