In the 14 months since the Mason Stevens Global Technology Managed Portfolio's inception in November 2019, we have witnessed some of the most volatile markets in recent memory.
Through this time, our high conviction portfolio's positioning largely remained unchanged as it capitalised on the trend of accelerated technology adoption globally throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. In it's first year since inception, the portfolio has returned 82.95% (net), outperforming the benchmark by 53.2%*.
As active managers we have seen 2021 as an opportunity to rebalance the portfolio in order to maintain the long-term return potential of the investment. These changes remain in line with the fundamentals of the portfolio and it's defined characteristics, but are the reflection ongoing research and evolving market conditions.
We have included a summary of these changes here.
Should you have any further questions, please contact your relationship manager.
