The third quarter of 2020 kept investors on the edge of their seats. By the end of August, the S&P500 delivered its strongest five-month return since 1938, shortly followed in September with the fastest technical correction sell-off of the NASDAQ in history.
In addition, of significance to Australian investors, the Australian dollar rallied from an intra-day low of 55.1 cents (March low) to approximately 72 cents to the USD which translates to an appreciation of over 30%.
Despite the intra-quarter volatility, the final outcome was a repeat of most quarters over the prior five years.

The Pengana International Fund invests in 30-50 companies across developed and developing markets, large and small companies. The Fund predominantly invests in franchises that deliver stable yet growing free cash flow throughout cycles (which we classify as ‘Core’ holdings) whilst also taking positions in more cyclical companies (‘Cyclical’) and those whose valuation has been materially misconstrued by the market (‘Opportunistic’).
