Global Opportunities Fund

  • INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES

    Diversifying into alternative asset classes is becoming increasingly important. With interest rates at all-time lows and investors seeking returns, equities are looking more attractive. The CC Global Opportunities Fund aims to achieve a higher level of return for investors by investing, mainly, in a diversified portfolio of blue-chip equities (such as stocks and shares). The CC Global Opportunities Fund invests in Blue Chip companies trading on major world markets. Blue Chip companies are known to weather downturns and operate profitably in the face of adverse economic conditions, which helps to contribute to their long record of stable and reliable growth.

    STRUCTURE

    The Fund operates under the UCTIS structure which has become the gold standard for EU investment funds for retail investors. UCITS funds are ideal for retail investors as they have been specifically designed to ensure diversification and liquidity through distinct parameters, permitted asset classes and investment restrictions as set out in EU law.

    MANAGEMENT

    The Funds are managed by a group of investment professionals at Calamatta Cuschieri Investment Management Limited who monitor developments on a daily basis.

Commentary

November 2020 Commentary

November will likely be marked as a turning point in the markets for 2020. The announcement of three vaccines that are effective against the virus drove a risk-on mood in markets and added fuel to the post-US election rally, eclipsing worries about the near-term economic outlook. Equity markets cheered the light at the end of the tunnel, with this year’s biggest losers gaining the most in November: MSCI Europe ex-UK and FTSE All-Share indices returned 14.2% and 12.7%, respectively. The year-to-date star performers, Asia ex-Japan and the US, still made impressive monthly gains of 8.0% and 11.0%. Global value stocks returned 15.1%, outperforming growth, which returned 10.9%.
An end to the Covid-19 crisis is now in sight, but the path to recovery may still be bumpy over the coming quarters as governments grapple to control the virus, particularly as seasonal factors make this more difficult through the winter period. In Europe, significant restrictions to curb the spread of the virus look to have been effective, with new infections now falling sharply from their latest peak. In the US, the situation has continued to escalate, with new cases continuing to rise and deaths following. High-frequency activity data shows the stark effect that the restrictions in Europe have had in slowing the economy. The question now is whether Europe is once again a bellwether for the US, and whether new restrictions and therefore a decline in services activity will be needed to contain the virus there.
In any case, markets are likely to digest near-term economic developments in the context of better times on the horizon, just as they did this month.
As the positive news surrounding the vaccine emerged, , uncertainty around the length of the Covid-19 crisis is beginning to fade, which in turn is brightening the outlook for risk assets – despite the difficult winter ahead for the economy.
Within equities, the outperformance this month of this year’s losers makes sense, with a return to normality now on the horizon. As the economic recovery plays out, earnings expectations should continue to recover providing continued support for equities.
