Anticipating a strong H2

Update | Technology | 11 Oct 2017

The last 18 months has been a transitional period for artec, with the group repositioning itself as a provider of cloud-based data analysis systems. The new cloud platform is highly scalable and will enable artec to generate recurring revenues. While the group ran at a loss in H117, the cloud pipeline is growing and new cloud customers are expected to sign up in H2. The second stage of expansion is set to begin on a project in Qatar and the group has won a new MULTIEYE order with a betting company, which was driven by artec’s ability to provide access control, face recognition and data protection. Consequently, management expects sales and earnings to rebound strongly in H2.

Gulf Investment Fund

Equity investment in a growing economy

Review | Investment Companies | 23 Feb 2017

Qatar Investment Fund (QIF) aims to generate long-term capital growth from a relatively concentrated portfolio of c 25 holdings. The majority of the fund is invested in companies listed in Qatar, but up to 15% may be listed in other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Qatar has favourable economic growth led by infrastructure spending and population growth, as the Qatari government actively moves away from its traditional reliance on hydrocarbon-based revenues. QIF is benchmarked against the Qatar Exchange index – its NAV total return has outperformed over one, three and five years.

Positive outlook for growth

Review | Investment Companies | 12 May 2016

Qatar Investment Fund (QIF) offers exposure to a country with growing GDP as a result of government policy to diversify away from a reliance on hydrocarbon-derived revenues as well as infrastructure spending ahead of the FIFA 2022 World Cup and population growth. Stocks are selected based on their potential for long-term capital growth, dividend yield and attractive valuations. The majority of the portfolio is comprised of stocks in the Qatar Exchange index, which has a forward P/E multiple below the longer-term average and a dividend yield above 4%. QIF is a dollar-denominated investment trust.

Not about oil

Initiation | Investment Companies | 01 Dec 2015

Qatar Investment Fund (QIF) offers exposure to growth in Qatar's diversifying economy, which is benefiting from prudently reinvested oil “super profits”. Qatar is seeing above average GDP growth and its stock market has shown low correlation with the oil price. The fund seeks to capture the benefits of infrastructure investment, national development and diversification underpinned by wealth accumulated from hydrocarbon reserves. Prudence at national and fund level and the implicit government backing enjoyed by many of QIF's portfolio companies may make this an interesting fund for investors seeking capital growth and a yield of c 3%.


Good H1 results; cancellations, Qatar, A330 and buy-backs are the key issues

Update | Aerospace & Defence | 31 Jul 2014

These were good results: comfortably above H113, and ahead of our forecasts, despite some lumpiness in terms of deliveries and R&D. The stand-out is Airbus commercial aircraft, with a 24% profit increase showing just how highly levered the business is to relatively small increases in volumes and mix, with eight extra aircraft giving a theoretical drop-through of >€30m EBIT per aircraft; as important is probably the five extra A380s contained within this total, with the higher run-rate helping Airbus towards its target of A380 breakeven in 2015.
