Cumulative Performance (%)

Strategy & Manager
The investment objective of the Sub-Fund is to seek long-term capital appreciation and to outperform the MSCI Europe ex-UK Total Return Net Index (EUR) (the “Benchmark”).
The Sub-Fund intends to invest its assets principally in equity securities of European companies or non European companies whose shares trade on a European exchange or that the Investment Manager determines are otherwise actively traded in Europe.
Some of the factors considered by the Sub-Fund in its selection of investments are the relative valuation of a company, the liquidity of that company, and the contribution that the stock would make to the conceptual diversification (and sectors, styles and geographies) of the portfolio.

Investment Manager's Commentaryas of
The markets experienced a strong rally in July and as market participant increased their risk appetite, defence stocks fell out of favour. The largest losing positions this month were our two defence stocks, Rheinmetall and Leonardo, detracting 1.7% and 0.5% of alpha respectively. Temenos (bank software) cost 0.5% after the company released results below the market consensus due to a large deal being postponed to Q3 instead of Q2.
The main positive contribution came from Worldline (payment services), which added 0.8% of alpha after the company posted results above the market consensus and showing accelerating growth.
