Latest News & Updates For AMP Capital Specialist Intl Shr A

AMP Capital Specialist Intl Shr A Fund Commentary December 31, 2022

The Fund posted a strong positive return and comfortably outperformed its benchmark during December quarter. All of the Fund’s five underlying managers gained ground, with American Century the only manager to underperform its benchmark. In what was a tough year for markets, while the Fund lost ground it outperformed its benchmark.

At a country level, active allocation held back performance on a relative basis. Holdings in Brazil detracted most, while within developed markets, the underweight position in Germany was the main detractor. On the flipside, the overweight position in the UK was a strong contributor, with an underweight position in the US also supportive.

Sector allocation also added value. Being overweight to energy and underweight to consumer discretionary were the main contributors, whereas the overweight position in industrials detracted. Stock selection was also a contributor to relative returns, particularly positions in IT and consumer discretionary stocks, while positions in industrials and energy stocks detracted most.

The largest individual stock contributors were having a nil position in Tesla and underweight exposures to Apple and Amazon.com. US-based automaker and energy storage company Tesla (- 56%) fell heavily amid fears high inflation may reduce demand for its electric vehicles as well as potential impacts of China’s COVID-19 lockdown on EV production and Elon Musk possibly reducing his shareholding to compensate for Twitter losses.

Shares in US-based technology company Apple (- 11%) and online retailer and cloud services provider Amazon.com (-30%) also suffered on the back of falling economic growth expectations as these types of stocks saw their premium share prices pull back.

The largest individual stock detractors were overweight positions in Petroleo Brasileiro, Global Payments Inc and Itau Unibanco Holding. Shares in state-owned Brazilian oil producer Petroleo Fund Performance state-owned Brazilian oil producer Petroleo Brasileiro (-9%) and financials services provider Itau Unibanco Holding (-12%) fell amid heightened market concerns relating to the potential for political unrest surrounding Brazil’s presidential election results. US-based financial payments tech company Global Payments Inc (-13%) also lost ground despite declaring record results for the September quarter, as lower economic growth expectations dampened investor sentiment.

  • SMSF Mate is a unique website because it has ideas about how to approach SMSFs, insurance and other financial topics that come straight from first hand experience. It's much more useful than what you find on all the other financial websites that just offer generic info that you could easily get on the ATO's website. It's also nice to know there's no financial incentive behind the information, it's legitimately there to help people understand self-managed super funds and how to get the most out of them, not to get an affiliate commission from a broker or other financial services provider. The investment product information is also incredibly useful, I've never seen this kind of functionality on any other website that let's you look at such a wide range of products, sort by what info is most interesting or important to you, and subscribe to updates for different funds and financial products all in one place. Definitely worth checking out if you own or are considering an SMSF!

    David G, Self-Employed, SMSF Owner
  • SMSF Mate provides a unique insight into superannuation and financial topics in a way that is easier to understand than conventional websites. The colloquial nature of the site makes it easy to understand and they often speak about complicated topics in lamens terms so I can wrap my head around them. The investment product information is a great way to research funds that I am interested in investing in with my SMSF and there is a lot of helpful information on the site for better structuring my investment portfolio. In comparison to other websites which offer similar information, SMSF Mate excels as the information is free to access whereas many other sites charge a subscription fee for the same thing. Overall, I think SMSF Mate is a great resource for SMSF trustees and is worth looking at for a variety of super-related topics. Thanks.
