Strategy

Investment objective and policy

BL Equities America invests in US equities with no restriction with regard to market capitalisation. The structure of this fund is not linked to a benchmark index, but results from the addition of individual investment opportunities. The fund aims to achieve long-term capital gains.

Management report - 3rd Quarter 2020

The third quarter of the year was very favourable to equities and bonds. The MSCI USA Net Total Return index expressed in USD gained 9.51% as the markets continue to capitalise on their second-quarter gains. In the third quarter, the net asset value of BL Equities America (retail accumulation share net of fees in USD) was up 11.89%. The main contributors to Q3 performance were logistics company FedEx, tech giant Apple, DIY retailer Lowe's, sports equipment manufacturer Nike and leading online retailer Amazon.com. Among the main detractors from performance were the biotech firm Gilead Sciences, medical equipment manufacturer Becton Dickinson, industrial company Ecolab, medical research firm IQVIA Holdings and brewer Molson Coors. No new companies were introduced into the portfolio during the quarter. The positions held in the brewer Molson Coors and cigarette manufacturer Philip Morris were sold. Molson Coors, which is still restructuring following the acquisition of some of SAB Miller's activities in 2015, has been unable to stabilise its losses in sales volume. This is preventing a sustainable recovery in the group's earnings and it has been hard hit by the current pandemic. Immediately after giving the green light for the sale of IQOS, Philip Morris' flagship product in the US, the regulatory authorities began to crack down on the sale of flavoured electronic cigarettes. The pace of substitution from conventional cigarettes to reduced-risk products (RRP) seems to have slowed, which is weighing on the world's leading cigarette manufacturer's recovery in sales growth.
