  • The Fund’s underperformance in February was attributable to stock selection as a handful of stocks experienced markedly bearish market reactions to issues that were in most cases already known. 
  • Shares in WPP fell 16% (-30% YTD) after FY19 results showed that a tougher Q4 meant revenue growth and underlying profit were c. 0.1% and c. 2.0% below analyst expectations respectively.
  • Shares in The Restaurant Group fell to new lows as growing market fears over the effect of the coronavirus on leisure spending coincided with management choosing to suspend the dividend.
