Latest Investment Report

Tantallon Tech & Sustainability Fund, March 2017

The fund went live at the beginning of the quarter and started deploying funds after a big run-up of the technology sector in 2016. We exited the quarter with 10 positions and 50pct of cash deployed.

On the technology front, we built our positions in the cyclical names such as Micron, Hynix, Sumco and Global Wafers which all turned into contributors for the quarter. We believe this is one of those once in a decade opportunities for the tech cyclicals. We were more selective in the growth names as valuations here are stretched and focused on Japan turnaround opportunities.

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.
