Fairview Emerging Companies Fund
Fairview Equity Partners is a smaller company Australian equities manager. The Fairview Equity Partners Emerging Companies Fund seeks to provide capital growth and some income by outperforming the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Accumulation Index over the medium to long term.
Performance and Market Outlook
The Fairview Fund was up for the June quarter but underperformed the Small Ords due to the rally in smallcap resource stocks. Investors experienced a rollercoaster ride in global equities which saw the Fed retreat from its ‘hawkish’ stance following weaker than expected non-farm payroll data. This has seen investors wind back their expectations of Fed rate hikes and subsequently global equity markets rallied. However, the gains were short lived in the lead up to the UK referendum, and financial market volatility surged. The political uncertainty and associated market volatility following the Brexit decision saw a strong spike in the gold price.
On the domestic front, near term political uncertainty remains and the lack of a definitive outcome from the Federal election is likely to prolong political paralysis. Regardless of the outcome, such a divided electorate is likely to hamper the mandate of the Prime Minister and will likely undermine confidence within the market. Despite the increased volatility and uncertainty, we continue to believe there are a number of compelling investment opportunities for those that know where to look.
