ADVISER'S COMMENTARY
Review
Investors key concern in August was the poor US economic data, especially job figures. In addition to the disappointing economic outlook, oil prices fell 9%. Strong corporate earnings releases led to positive earnings expectation
trends. Given the weak macro economic context, defensives sectors displayed the best performance during the period. Health care was the only sector with positive returns while IT stocks were the worst performers. Oil & gas,
basic materials and industrials all closed down on fears that the economy may slip into a new recession.
Strategy
As equity markets fell, the Funds underexposure at 98% had a positive impact on relative performance. In terms of country allocation, the Fund benefited from its overweight regional allocation in Switzerland. The stock selection
approach was beneficial to the Fund over the month. The best performing holdings came from cyclical sectors: Tomra system, an industrial company in Norway and Elementis, a British chemicals company. The
Funds overweight allocation in the pharmaceuticals sector also bolstered performance.
Outlook
At a company level, the second quarter earnings season came in ahead of analyst expectations and earnings have been revised upwards (excluding Financials) accordingly. Equity markets are undervalued based on our global model
and economic data releases were better-than-expected in Europe. At a macro economic level, the negative sentiment on US growth more than offset these positive figures. We expect valuation data and the micro economic
outlook to lead the equity market over the coming month.
