Exposure datamonthly weekly
The Fund posted a positive performance, but trailed its reference indicator. European markets rallied in July, supported in particular by a lull in trade tensions between the European Union and the United States, as reflected in the agreement between Donald Trump and Jean-Claude Juncker at the end of the month. We benefitted from the strength of our healthcare stocks, such as our biotech companies Galapagos and MorphoSys, which signed an exclusive agreement to develop and market a drug with Novartis. We also saw a strong performance from Reckitt Benckiser, manufacturer and distributor of cleaning products and pharmaceuticals, which published better-than-expected quarterly results. On the other hand, the fall in our technology stocks, such as Sophos Group, weighed on performance. The cybersecurity specialist’s stock price dropped after it published disappointing first quarter results. We had reduced our holding before the announcement of these results and ultimately closed our position. The Fund’s equity exposure remains high.
