  • The cyclicality of the portfolio has waxed and waned over the period, led by valuation and without sacrificing our quality requirements. At the same time, we have found ourselves able steadily to raise the structural growth potential of the portfolio by adding a variety of new names.
  • It does seem clear that from a macroeconomic perspective we are moving into the mid cycle phase, in which the focus turns to the timing and pace of interest rate rises and during which market leadership broadens out and becomes less predictable and more idiosyncratic.
  • From our perspective, this offers hope that the underlying quality and growth of the companies in our portfolio will be recognised. The last such phase, roughly from 2012-16, was a period of very strong relative performance for the strategy.
  • We are actually more enthusiastic about the underlying growth prospects for our portfolio than we have been for some years.
