Market and portfolio review

The Fund performed inline with the benchmark over the March quarter with contribution from dynamic asset allocation and a detraction from manager selection. Manager selection detracted value predominantly within the Alternative Growth and the emerging markets Trusts. Managers contributing to this were GMO within Alternative Growth, and TT international within emerging markets. Positive contributions within managaer selection came from MBA (global listed infrastructure) and Royal London in the international sector. DAA was a contributor coming from an overweight to global listed infrastructure and Alternative Defensive Trusts.

Future investment strategy

Market volatility heightened in the first quarter of 2022 as the war in Ukraine emerged. Investors are focused on the impact of the war on commodity and energy prices, and ultimately higher inflation and rising interest rates. The result will and has been increased volatility and diverging company performance.

At times of heightened volatility, we believe it is valuation discipline that matters most, with the price you pay the key determinant of future returns.

Our investment philosophy remains unchanged. Our focus remains on identifying skilled investment managers with a long-term horizon, rather than trying to maximise exposure to a particular sector or benchmark risk. In our opinion, this is what leads to long-term outperformance and why we believe our active approach will continue to benefit our clients over time.

The Fund outperformed its benchmark for the year by 1.5% (gross of fees). Both manager selection and tactical asset allocation added value over the year. The main contibutors to manager selection outperformance was within the Alternative Growth Trust, international equities, global listed infrastructure, diversifed fixed interest and global smaller companies Trust.The main contributors to manager alpha were, Anchorage, Alphinity, Royal London, Stone Harbor, and Arrowstreet. TAA was also a contributor coming from an underweight to cash and an overweight to global equities and global property and infrastructure. Having an underweight to the Australian dollar also contrbuted.
