  • We are about to enter a period of intense news flow, with the US election outcome, a potential Brexit conclusion and the possibility of a Covid-19 vaccine all due imminently.
  • The Fund’s positive relative performance over the month was largely down to better mood music around Brexit (which led to a small uptick in sterling) and increasing expectations of a Biden victory in the US election.
  • We expect the Fund to recover strongly if we see either: a Brexit resolution, a Biden victory/Democratic Senate or a Covid-19 vaccine.
