FUND COMMENTARY
April was largely a positive month for risk assets, led by a continued rally in oil and a recovery in the price of lower
rated credit. Equity markets were overall positive as the MSCI World rose 1.4%. Europe outperformed the US
(Eurostoxx 600 +1.2%, S&P500 +0.3%). Credit performed well, with the JPM Global High Yield Index returning 3.6%
and CCCs and energy significantly outperformed. Economic data was mixed, though some improvement in data from
China, coupled with a continuing robust US jobs market, supported markets. As expected, the ECB kept its historic low
interest rate. By contrast, the BoJ disappointed investors by unexpectedly not expanding its program of monetary
stimulus, resulting in significant appreciation of the JPY to an 18 month high against the USD.
Performance was driven by gains from equity long/short managers offset by losses from event driven managers whilst
global macro was largely flat.
The equity long/short allocation benefited from its exposure to healthcare as the sector outperformed for the month,
recovering some of its prior YTD underperformance despite the Pfizer Allergan deal being shut down early in the
month by newly drafted US tax inversion legislation. The S&P Healthcare Index was up 2.9% and our two healthcare
managers returned over 5% and close to 3%. Strong contribution also came from the energy and utilities focused
manager who returned over 3%.
Our event allocation had a difficult month. Our more aggressive merger arbitrage manager suffered losses from the
break in the Allergan and Pfizer transaction. These losses offset moderate gains from our more defensive merger
arbitrage manager.

Global macro was very marginally negative. Gains were led by a multi-strategy manager which benefited from select
position in energy equities, shorts in European rates and tactical long positions in Brazilian fixed income. These were
offset by losses from our commodity focused manager, who suffered from short positions in French power and coal.
