MARKET OUTLOOK
"I think that people who know us know that we try to do two things: One is to find industries or sectors or themes where there's a structural shift taking place that benefits the sector and allows it to be revalued, and we try to stay away from the groups that have some kind of structural challenge. Clearly, over the last three years, four years, there's been a fairly significant structural headwind to the energy industry, which doesn't appear to be going away. This work that's being done with fracking in the Permian has created a whole bunch of barrels of oil in production. And it's cheap and it's coming readily and so it's a real headwind for the industry."
