The fund performed excellent during August with a gain of 7.86%. By this we extended our outperformance by 2.51% up to 42.7% since start on the first of March 2019. Especially our stock selection contributed to the result. There were two stellar performing stocks, Varta (+37.64%) and Salesforce.com (+38.03%). Only a couple of stock ended up with a small negative return. Our portfolio hedge contributed as expected in a negative way to the result.

During November the performance differential between managers and strategies was remarkable. We ended up with a positive return of just a little bit more than 1%. The drivers of the performance were CTA (+2.3%) and Equity strategies (+3.2%). The other strategies suffered losses during November. Except two managers all CTA managers performed well.
