  • Brexit and Covid-19 concerns led to the continued dominance of defensive parts of the market in September. 
  • The Fund’s poor performance now is similar to its performance during the global financial crisis (GFC); we expect a strong rebound when the market narrative changes, as we saw in the years following the GFC.
  • Dynamics that could change the narrative include economic recovery, rising inflation expectations, a Brexit resolution, increased M&A or a Covid-19 vaccine.
