Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

November 2019

Your Fund returned +2.9% during the month compared to +2.8% for the MSCI World Index NR (£).

A holding in Agilent Technologies was recently initiated for the portfolio. Agilent is the global market leader in gas and liquid chromatography instruments. These sophisticated products are essential to determine the precise physical properties of samples gathered in applications such as pharmaceutical research, quality control and government environmental monitoring.

One of the oldest businesses based in Silicon Valley, Agilent began life inside Hewlett-Packard before becoming an independent company in 1999 and spinning out their cyclical electronic measurement business in 2014. The company protects its leadership in the sector through intellectual property built up over 54 years of R&D. Agilent generates just over 70% of its sales outside of the United States.

CEO Mike McMullen has been with the business for over 30 years and has further transitioned Agilent towards a ‘razor and blade’ business model. The company is monetising its significant installed base by increasing the consumables and services supplied after the initial instrument sale. Revenues from consumables, services and software represented 57% of group revenue in the latest quarter, a highly profitable and defensive source of revenue growth.

We believe Agilent will continue to expand as tailwinds from environmental regulation and rising healthcare spending support increased demand for analytical instruments. Combining Agilent’s revenue growth with rising margins should lead to attractive free cash flow growth for many years to come.
