January 2018 - Portfolio Review

The European equity market began 2018 on the same positive trajectory as we saw during the final weeks of 2017. In January, the broad European equity market added over 1.5%, led higher by some of the more cyclical areas. The Eurozone market outperformed, adding over 3%. At sector level, Financials and Consumer Discretionary were the best performing, while Real Estate, Utilities, and Consumer Staples lagged.

 

The Portfolio underperformed its benchmark, the MSCI1 EMU, in January. At sector level, the Portfolio had a positive contribution from Consumer Discretionary and Information Technology. In contrast, Financials and Materials detracted.  

The Portfolio offers an innovative investment approach where we combine stocks which are long-term winners versus their respective sector and the market, with holdings that capture shorter-term trends and opportunities. This approach has delivered outperformance in a variety of market climates with lower levels of volatility.
