Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

February 2020

Your Fund returned -7.4% during the month compared to -5.5% for the MSCI World Index NR (£).

Since the start of the year the Fund is down -3.6% which compares to the Index -5.6%. Investors are reminded that the Fund is priced at mid-day (GMT) whereas the benchmark comparator takes end-of-day prices. This mismatch can lead to big divergences if, as was the case in February, stock markets are especially volatile on the last day of the month. Longer time periods continue to give a more valuable description of the Fund’s pattern of performance.

It is too early to tell the extent of the impact on the portfolio from the spread of coronavirus. No company will go unaffected. The most exposed are directly involved in the travel industry (e.g. Booking Holdings, American Express) or have sizeable businesses in China or other more heavily infected countries (e.g. Nestlé, Medtronic).

In aggregate, the Fund is deliberately invested in businesses that sell everyday essential products and services, all around the world. Additional insulation comes from their market leadership, strong cash generation and sound balance sheets.

With knowledge of the companies we want to own and the prices we are prepared to pay for them, these moments can give opportunities to upgrade the quality and long-term growth potential of the portfolio. We are not yet motivated to make wholesale changes. Existing holdings in Facebook and Mastercard were increased at the end of the month.
