Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

June 2021

Your Fund delivered a total return of +1.6% during the month compared to +0.2% for the FTSE All-Share Index (TR).

This positive monthly return continues the trend of improved performance since the end of February, which marked the point when a four-month period of sharp sector rotation began to reverse again. As we have often said in the past, such extreme changes of market sentiment can have a significant impact on short-term relative performance. Our firm belief is that over the longer term your Fund will deliver competitive returns despite occasional setbacks such as this.

Individual companies that performed well in the month included the two major pharmaceutical companies, AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline, as well as Croda (the speciality chemicals company) and RELX (the global information and analytics provider). Since the end of February, your Fund has produced double-digit returns, in excess of the market. This reflects the fact that many of these high-quality companies have bounced back from excessively depressed valuations.

A new holding in Admiral Group has been initiated. This specialist motor insurance company has a 21% share of the UK market but still has plenty of scope to grow in the UK as well as in Europe. The business generates a market-leading return on equity and regularly produces more cash than it needs, resulting in a comfortably affordable ordinary dividend that is regularly supplemented by special payouts. We believe that this is a high-quality UK franchise capable of sustaining attractive value creation and enhancing the Fund’s future dividend growth.

As the global economy moves into a post-pandemic phase, led by more fully vaccinated nations such as the UK, the longer-term impact of the virus, both human and economic, will become apparent. The inflationary consequences will be critical. The coming months will determine whether the sharp rises in the price of some commodities and products are being caused by temporary bottlenecks or something more permanent that can challenge the disinflationary trends that have prevailed over recent years.
