Fund Commentary

US equities contracted markedly in the first quarter of 2020 as the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak spread and the economic damage grew clearer, while prospects of an US recession became more likely and volatility surged to record levels. The US Federal Reserve was the most aggressive of the G10 central banks, as it cut rates twice in March by 50 bps and 100 bps, bringing the lower bound to 0%, and announced unlimited quantitative easing; while the US Senate passed an USD2 trillion fiscal stimulus package. All sectors lost ground over the period, with Energy stocks hit the hardest amid oil prices collapse. Financials also fell sharply, whilst Information Technology and Health Care sectors held up relatively better.Looking at quarterly performance, while our sector positioning remains broadly in line with the FTSE MPF US Index, our underweight allocation to Energy along with our overweight exposures to Information Technology and Health Care contributed to performance. Conversely, our underweight allocations to Consumer Staples and Communication Services weighed on performance.
