Latest Investment Report

Tantallon Tech & Sustainability Fund, April 2020

The fund gained 5% in April in line with a broad market recovery and cash holdings in excess of 50%. Our technology holdings contributed a majority of the gains and account for 70% of our equity holdings.

We remain suspicious of this rapid tech-led rebound, especially in semiconductors and tech hardware which we follow closely. We may have underestimated that a large proportion of funds need to stay fully invested and identify technology as part of the solution to our new Covid-19 future while the business models of many other sectors have gone from somewhat challenged to severly disrupted.

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.
