Outlook

Equity markets have experienced increased volatility since peaking in November 2021 but continue to trade significantly higher than their pandemic lows. From February 2020 to March 2020, during the pandemic selloff, the Vanguard Total World Stock Index ETF lost 34.4% of its value. From March 2020 to November 2021, the initial recovery, the Vanguard Total World Stock Index ETF recovered all its losses plus more, up 100.5%. From November 2021 to June 2022, during the current selloff, the Vanguard Total World Stock Index ETF lost 21.9% of its value but remains 56.6% higher than its pandemic low.

Technically, we’re in a bear market, which is defined by a decline of 20% or more. However, second-quarter gross domestic product (GDP) will determine if we enter a recession, which is defined as two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth.

Again, we believe that central banks can navigate a soft landing and equity markets will continue their trajectory higher after the slower summer months. With that said, the Fund is positioned for growth. Although we expect equities to deliver positive returns over the remainder of the current economic cycle, there are several risks to monitor over the near term: higher inflation, rising interest rates, the Russia-Ukraine war, and the ongoing pandemic.

Performance returns for the Matco Mutual Funds are calculated by Matco Financial Inc. These returns are calculated and reported in Canadian dollars and are historical simple returns for the 3 month, YTD and 1 year periods and annualized compounded total returns for periods after 1 year. They include changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any security holder that would have reduced returns. A cumulative return on an investment is the aggregate amount that the investment has gained or lost over time, independent of the amount of time involved, expressed as a percentage. Calendar year return reflects the compound rate of return over the specified calendar year (January 1st to December 31st). Matco Fund returns are calculated after management fees and operating expenses have been deducted.
