Latest Overview GBP - March 2019 (print version)
Equity markets continued performing well through March. Commentary from members of the Federal Reserve’s FOMC suggests U.S. monetary policy is likely to remain accommodative for the foreseeable future. Incoming data from China suggests growth in that economy is already responding positively to recent stimulus. Continental Europe remains the primary area of concern where cyclical and market indicators suggest the region may already be in recession; the 10-year German government bond is again trading with a negative yield.
The recovery in the equity markets continues to be led by the technology sectors, with companies benefiting from the growth in cloud computing performing especially well. As a result, some of the largest contributors to this month’s performance came from your holdings in Cadence Design Systems, Synopsis and Nvidia. Outside of the computing space, medical technology, led by Edwards Life sciences, also performed well.
Once again, we have trimmed a few of your larger holdings, rebalancing the proceeds into some of your smaller investments. As a result, your largest single investment is now Roper Technologies representing approximately 3.5% of your fund’s value.
