February was characterised by a recovery in value sectors and profit-taking in more growth-orientated sectors. Financials (banks) and Real Estate rose sharply while the Technology sector, and particularly segments such as Semiconductors, Cybersecurity, and Cleantech, dropped significantly. As an example, the Cleantech sector has declined 10% since the beginning of the year, following a very strong 2020. The Fund is overweight these more growth-orientated sectors and underweight value, and its performance suffered as a result.

Founder & CEO
Founder & Managing Partner
The Pengana Alpha Israel Fund invests in listed Israeli companies that produce cutting edge – both high and low tech – technologies. These Israeli listed companies have developed solid intellectual property coupled with strong global distribution.
The Fund offers Australian investors diversification within global equity exposure to a unique and promising market that is very much skewed to industries and technologies that are either limited, or do not exist, in the Australian market place, such as: the semiconductor industry, solar and water treatment technology, aerospace and electronic defence industries, and cyber security technologies.
