Market development

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

A bear market rally appears to be playing out, given the latest US Central Bank Summit at Jackson Hole and the subsequent loss of momentum for many growth stocks. Short-term demand drove equity markets broadly higher into a low liquidity environment during August, ignoring several issues not limited to: a continuing Russia-Ukraine conflict distorting supply chains and global energy prices; US-China geopolitical tensions; and the need for many central banks to 'catch-up' to the US Federal Reserve and ease their own domestic inflationary issues. As a result, the Nasdaq was up by mid-month only to end the month down, with long-duration assets and growth stocks again falling out of favor. However, what we saw for many of our holdings was positively constructive. Firstly, we continued to see that idiosyncratic factors are acting as positive catalysts for some of our stocks, which was not the case during the last earnings season. Earnings announcements for companies such as Pinduoduo and EPAM Systems beat expectations, causing meaningful stock rallies. In addition, we see macro-related factors for both Brazil and China improving, which has positively benefited our portfolio.

Expectation of fund manager

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

Many stocks in our portfolio suffer from negative price momentum. With the overall market still experiencing bearish sentiment, we expect continued volatility for the coming months. Quarterly results reported by our portfolio holdings highlight that long-term trends are intact, fundamentals are strong, and management teams (and strategic investors with cash) are taking advantage of weak asset prices. Individual company's operational performance remains robust, and we are cautiously positioning the portfolio to benefit from a rebound in the future.
