There is growing evidence that the current commodity productivity wave is likely in the process of ending and a more structurally favourable commodity outlook beginning. We believe this scenario will create a more supportive backdrop for investing in commodity equites in the coming years.

Fund Summary
Our approach involves assessing resource/commodity cycles, industry valuations, and company fundamentals. The focus is on identifying well-managed companies with attractive long-term supply and demand fundamentals. We broadly diversify holdings for more consistent returns potential and lower volatility than highly concentrated energy or gold strategies. The manager is not constrained by the fund's benchmark, which is used for performance comparison purposes only.

Natural resources equities advanced in May. Oil prices fell as the US Federal Reserve held interest rates steady and noted that high inflation readings could delay rate cuts. Investors were concerned that the cuts may begin later than originally expected, given that higher rates typically weigh on the economy and can reduce oil demand. Within the portfolio, stock selection in electrical equipment and components added value as the significant demand potential from artificial intelligence, which requires a lot of electricity for computing power in data centres, benefitted companies that provide power and components to those producers. Stock choices in diversified metals and mining also added value. Base metals moved broadly higher during the month, as copper prices hit another record high on increased demand and supply constraints. Conversely, an overweight exposure and stock selection in US oil exploration and production detracted due to falling oil prices. Our positions in the industry are focused on companies with a diverse asset base, disciplined capital allocation, strong balance sheet and quality management team. Stock selection also detracted in industrial gases. Within the segment, we focus on companies that we believe will benefit from multiple themes, such as deglobalisation and decarbonisation, and that have superior business models.

After spending a decade underweight energy, the portfolio is now overweight versus the benchmark. In 2023, we saw incremental evidence that we are in the ending stages of the productivity wave in oil and natural gas and are approaching a more structurally positive environment for commodities. We have found that the market transition as productivity rolls over is often bumpy, so we are modestly overweight energy and metals, with a focus on companies that are high quality, high conviction and/or with idiosyncratic drivers.

Source for performance: T. Rowe Price. Fund performance is calculated using the official NAV with dividends reinvested, if any. The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up. Investors may get back less than the amount invested. It will be affected by changes in the exchange rate between the base currency of the fund and the subscription currency, if different. Sales charges (up to a maximum of 5% for the A Class), taxes and other locally applied costs have not been deducted and if applicable, they will reduce the performance figures.

Daily performance data is based on the latest available NAV.
