30-Sep-2020 - Scott Berg, Portfolio Manager,
Given the increasing difficulty in navigating markets, we are maintaining a broadly balanced portfolio with sector exposures relatively neutral to our core benchmark. We still own a mix of structural winners, durable compounders, and higher yielding companies that held up well during the March sell-off but have levelled off since. While we are more cautious near-term for global equities, we like what we own and remain more constructive over the medium term.

Fund Summary
The fund uses a global opportunity set to look across all countries, sectors, and market capitalizations, while actively excluding non- impact areas of the global economy, to find stocks with clear impact and financial return markers. We leverage integrated fundamental research and ESG resources to systematically and proactively evaluate the quality and long-term sustainability of investment candidates.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

30-Jun-2017 - Scott Berg, Portfolio Manager,
In Australian dollar terms, global equities declined in June with returns in all major regions ending the month in negative territory as the Australian dollar strengthened versus most major currencies. Returns in financials contributed the most to relative outperformance due to stock selection, led by TD Ameritrade Holding, and a favourable sector overweight. Within consumer staples, stock selection also added value. Conversely, adverse stock selection in health care detracted from relative performance, with biotech firm Shire weighing on relative returns. At the regional level, stock selection in North America contributed to relative performance while holdings in Japan hampered relative results.
30-Sep-2020 - Scott Berg, Portfolio Manager,
In our view, there are more coronavirus beneficiaries in the consumer discretionary sector than anywhere else, but this has led to a dramatic demarcation between winners and losers. The coronavirus has pulled forward years of e-commerce share gains in the span of a few months and we have an expanded set of names levered to that trend.
