Commentary

Global equity performance was mixed in March, as markets in the UK and Continental Europe gained on robust merger and acquisition activity, while emerging markets underperformed. Monetary policy around the world continued to be tightened: both the US Federal Reserve and European Central Bank raised interest rates by 0.25%, to 4.75% and 2.50%, respectively; while the Bank of Japan ended its five-year long policy of excess liquidity, a move seen as a precursor to a rate increase. In contrast, the Bank of England kept base rates unchanged. Global bond yields continued to rise, on increased risk aversion, and concerns over persistently strong oil prices. During the month, we exited French auto components maker, Valeo.We also invested new money by adding to the fund’s existing holdings. In terms of investment strategy, we continue to favour well-managed companies, which offer strong cashflows and high dividend yields at reasonable valuations.

The figures shown are intended only to demonstrate performance history of the fund, after allowing for the impact of ongoing charges, but take no account of product charges.

The value of your client’s investment can go down as well as up and the amount your client gets back may be less than they put in.
