Exposure datamonthly weekly
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. In this context, the Fund’s performance was hurt by the fall in UK insurance comparison site Gocompare.com. Similarly, the declines in sporting goods manufacturer Puma and software publisher Alfa Financial Software proved costly. On the other hand, we benefitted from the strong performance of Spirit Airlines, which made the biggest contribution to the portfolio’s performance. The US airline announced a reduction in its costs and the number of cancelled flights. Finally, we also profited from Siemens Healthineers. The medical imaging specialist published better-than-expected quarterly earnings, which were welcomed by investors. Equity exposure remained cautious at the end of the period.
