In this video, Laura Foll, Co-Fund Manager of Henderson Opportunities Trust, discusses the Trust’s recent performance, highlighting the contribution from the different buckets/sleeves, areas where she’s finding opportunities and how the trust avoids structurally declining industries.

Key Takeaways

  • While the drivers of performance have changed compared to last year, the Trust’s diversification via the ‘bucket’ or ‘sleeve’ system has enabled it to perform well in the first half of 2021.
  • The domestic economy is recovering faster than expected – providing a positive backdrop for businesses within the Large companies, Recovery, and Natural Resources
  • Setting a 20% upper limit on the Recovery bucket cushions the portfolio against potentially structurally declining industries.
