Retaining a focus on fundamentals

Political noise is a distraction in any market environment but in an election year the clamour is heightened. So, in February we had one of our holdings, Nat West Bank, reporting its biggest annual profit since the 2007 financial crisis but in the days that followed seeing its share price fall on speculation of a possible windfall tax on the banking sector.

Thailand has been held up as a model of a country that has dealt well with the virus. It has only recorded 59 deaths from Covid-19 and there have been no domestic infections since June (the only cases since then have been people coming into the country).
