Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

April 2020

Your Fund returned +7.0% during the month compared to a return of +7.4% for the IA Flexible Investment (TR).

Following a steep market decline in March, April saw a strong rebound.  The speed of both the initial fall and the subsequent recovery has been dramatic.  For example, shares in Polar Capital Technology Trust have risen +44% since we established a holding (~1%) in March.  The Trust’s strong performance partly relates to the fact that its shares traded at a 15% discount to net asset value at the time of purchase and now trade at a small premium.  However, it also reflects confidence in the financial strength of the companies Polar Capital own, as well as a belief that the pandemic will accelerate many of the technological tailwinds that existed beforehand.

Despite the strong recovery in markets, it is impossible to predict how equities will react over the coming months.  The damage caused by the virus is severe and the range of economic possibilities remains extremely wide.  This is likely to remain the case until the world finds a medical solution.  Rather than trying to predict the short-term gyrations of stock markets, we prefer to focus on owning good-quality funds, managed by outstanding people, which we can hold for the long-term.  We also retain enough dry powder to benefit from any further volatility by adding to investments like Polar Capital Technology at more attractive prices.
