Exposure datamonthly weekly
The Fund underperformed its reference indicator. European equity markets were up over the period, led by the most cyclical sectors such as energy, materials and banks. As a result, our underweighting of these sectors weighed on the Fund's relative performance. Ryanair was also down, still affected by the conflict between the group's management and its pilots. Similarly, argenx had a negative effect. Although the group initially benefitted from encouraging clinical trial results for one of its treatments, it suffered from concerns about potential side effects. However, biotech company Galapagos Genomics was up after announcing positive results of a phase-three clinical trial for its rheumatism drug, Filgotinib. These results greatly improve visibility over the group's revenue. We slightly reduced the Fund’s equity exposure over the month.
