  • World equity markets moved higher in February with the MSCI World total return index hitting a new all-time high in both US dollar and sterling terms.
  • Growing investor confidence in the global recovery pushed inflation expectations higher leading to a sharp rise in global bond yields.
  • This was the Fund’s best February since inception and, pleasingly, performance was driven almost entirely by stock selection with major announcements from some of the Fund’s highest conviction positions.
