Megafin Growth FoF comment - Jun 19

2019/09/04 00:00:00
Megafin SCI Growth Fund of Funds Portfolio Update
After a very strong start to the year, aggressive investors had mixed fortunes during the second quarter of 2019, largely due to rand strength against developed market currencies which detracted from the Portfolio performance.
The Megafin SCI Growth FoF’s returned 0.7% for the quarter and has generated a return of 3.8% over the past year.
After disappointing performance in May, global equity markets finished the quarter strongly, largely on the back of comments from the major central banks that they would be willing to provide support in the form of lower interest rates and easing trade tensions between the U.S. and China.
Asset Allocation
The Portfolio’s significant allocation to global equities delivered decent hard currency returns during the quarter, however, rand strength detracted meaningfully from the performance of these allocations. Within global equities, developed market equities outperformed emerging market equities, driven higher by U.S. equity markets which make up a significant portion of global equity indices. The other material allocation within the Portfolio, local equities, contributed meaningfully to performance in line with the supportive global environment. Within local equities, Financials contributed the most to performance, while Industrials and Resources also generated positive performance over the quarter. A small allocation to local listed property contributed positively to portfolio performance, despite the asset class facing headwinds in the South African environment.
Fund Selection
The contribution from fund selection was mixed over the quarter. Nedgroup Core Bond delivered strong performance in the second quarter of 2019. The fund's significant allocation to South African government bonds drove performance as bond yields fell across the globe in expectation of lower future interest rates.
CoreShares S&P SA Top 50 was one of the best performing funds over the quarter. This is a passive fund that invests in the largest 50 companies on the JSE, however, they cap their weight to one share to 10% of the fund. The fund’s exposure to resources, especially the gold miners, was a solid contributor to performance over the quarter.
PSG Equity underperformed the market and its peers over the second quarter of 2019. The fund had a few stock specific detractors: Glencore (-16%), Imperial (-14%) and Japan Post Insurance (-16%). Large-cap shares continued to outperform the small and mid-cap shares over the quarter.
No changes were made to the portfolio composition during the quarter.
While equity allocations can be volatile over short time periods, they are necessary in order to generate significant inflation-beating returns over the long term. With strong performance in the first quarter of 2019, the Portfolio has delivered decent rand returns year-to-date, which is encouraging.
