Fund manager insights

During August 2022 the Explorer Equity Fund generated a negative return of -1.98%, while in the same period the MSCI All Country World lost -3.86%. Equities sold off in the second half of August. Poor economic data and the FED reasserting that the monetary policy will be tighter for longer were the catalysts for the move downward. Rising interest rates pushed the dollar to its highest level in 20 years. Despite headline inflation easing to 8.5% (y/y) in July, Mr. Powel reiterated the Fed’s objective: restoring price stability. Consequentially, markets have priced-in another 75bps hike in September. In Europe gas and power prices spiked sharply in the face of tight electricity markets and further reduced Russian gas supplies. An increasingly hawkish ECB has signalled that a steeper path of hiking may be necessary. Emerging markets proved to be a diversifier this month. Chinese equities were supported by the People’s Bank of China decision to cut its medium-term lending facility interest rate. Speaking about performances, the Explorer Equity Fund during August increased the alpha generated against the MSCI ACWI.
At the end of the month, the alpha was around 10.9%. For the next weeks, considering that we believe inflation will remain high and that central banks or politics do not have great possibilities to counter it, we’ll keep a conservative attitude: we in fact believe that it is not the time to be aggressive because equity markets may generate lower lows in 2022 and that they could face a prolonged trading range or a downside period before starting a new bullish phase.
