Latest Investment Report

Tantallon Tech & Sustainability Fund, Aug 2018

The fund gained 1.6% in August which outpaced the overall markets but fell well short of the tech index which gained 6.5% on the back of a 20% move by Apple, its the largest constituent. The August move also saw Apple break thru the USD1tr market cap barrier as the S&P hit new historic highs.

Our US tech holdings provided most of the positive momentum. IC design house Realtek was the only major contributor from Asia as cyclical fears are on the rise and increasing trade tension look likely to cause supply chain adjustments.

Post card from Iran

There is so little information on Iran you cannot even find the Teheran Stock Exchange on Bloomberg. Yet this is an exchange with a market cap of US170billion, turning over up to US150m/day with zero foreign participation, entirely on the back of domestic mutual fund and retail investors.

News from Ukraine

In Lv’iv on the morning of my departure I attended the funeral of one of the casualties of the “anti-terrorist operation” in Donetsk. Loudspeakers relayed polyphonic chant from impressively hirsute Orthodox clergy to a cluster of old women and an honor guard, smoking furiously and in no mood to be photographed, waiting to transport the hearse the short distance from the altar to a waiting ambulance.
