I don't think so - though the timing of the new trust isn't so good! EM woes have caught up with him!

Any reason for the drop, related to the new fund ?

The Smithson Investment Trust: https://www.investegate.co.uk/smithson-inv-trust/rns/intention-to-float/201809040700176442Z/ and the FT comment: Fundsmith, the fund management business set up by veteran City stockpicker Terry Smith, says it will absorb all of the launch costs of its new £250m investment trust in a move that will reignite the debate over investment fees charged to retail investors. The Smithson Investment Trust will target small and mid-cap global companies, and is intended to be the “son of” Fundsmith’s £17bn equity fund, which has grown rapidly since its launch nearly eight years ago to become one of Europe’s 20 largest actively management funds. Fundsmith said it would “bear all of the costs” associated with the planned launch of Smithson next month, meaning that for every £10 invested in the issue, shareholders “will receive £10 of value on day one of trading”. “We’ve never seen another example of this in the market,” said Mr Smith. “Presumably that means some people in the investment trust world might be upset, to which I say ‘oh dear’.” As the investment manager, Fundsmith will charge an annual management fee of 0.9 per cent based on Smithson’s market capitalisation, not the commonly used measure of net asset value. “We think funding the upfront costs is the reasonable thing to do, as we are going to get fees over the years for managing this. Assuming the fund is successful, we will recoup our investment,” said Mr Smith, who is personally investing £25m into the new vehicle. Active managers have come under fire for charging retail investors high investment fees when, in many cases, the performance of their funds has been beaten by low-cost passive funds which merely track an index. Since its launch in 2010, Fundsmith’s equity fund has beaten its benchmark, returning more than 20.3 per cent on an annualised basis compared with 14.4 per cent for the MSCI world index. Mr Smith said that at launch, Smithson would target a portfolio of 25 to 40 global companies with a market capitalisation between £500m to £15bn which could “compound in value over many years, if not decades”. He highlighted the consumer goods sector, healthcare and IT as sectors where investments would be particularly targeted. “When Fundsmith made its first investment in Domino’s Pizza, it was a £1.8bn company, but today it’s worth £12.5bn,” Mr Smith said. “We could still buy it — but how about the next Domino’s?” He mentioned Wingstop, the $2bn Nasdaq-listed fast-food chain, as a possible contender but said the sheer size of Fundsmith’s £17bn equity fund meant that “we would have to buy a third of the company, a road to ruin in terms of liquidity”. Such issues prompted the launch of the new vehicle. Other smaller stocks that Mr Smith said could meet the new trust’s investment criteria included Fevertree, the upmarket UK tonic brand; Ambu, the Danish healthcare company that is the world’s biggest manufacturer of disposable endoscopes; and Amadeus, the Spanish airline and travel reservations business. Smithson will be led by two fund managers Fundsmith hired from Goldman Sachs last year — Simon Barnard, the trust’s investment manager, and Will Morgan, its assistant investment manager. Mr Smith will provide “advice and support” to the management team in his capacity as chief investment officer of Fundsmith, the company said.

@ Peterbill - at December 2017, it had 0.2% of its portfolio in DP Eurasia NV, incorporated in the Netherlands, principal place of business Turkey. So not much, I'd say. But India is its biggest country holding and the rupee has been weak recently.

$ interest rate increases will impact EM economies fairly badly as the effect works thro in external borrowings and currency impact. Maybe time to exit and return later?

Feet has virtually no exposure to china therefore this fund could outperform during the global trade battle with the USA, Shanghai Shenzhen CSI 300 Index of Equities now in bear market and down over 20% since start of year. Feet down about 6%

Thanks. I’d guess (hope) your version is correct and the phrase “from the AGM” got missed out of the reply to me (the person I asked went off to ask a colleague).

Feet is a big holding for me and It’s just coming up to 4 years since launch with annualised growth dipping under 6% It still looks like the safe harbour I wanted when I first bought so I’ll remain invested but I’d be happier if it would push on now

Surprised they didn't put the 2018 AGM online. Suggests that shareholder questions were tough? Surprised they bought into that Indian bike company.

I can’t find this year’s AGM TV presentation but the document that no is here hTTp://www.feetplc.co.uk/docs/default-source/presentations/feet-2018-agm-presentation.pdf?sfvrsn=2 5.7% growth not too good but had a lot of headwinds in India, their main market. I’m still a fan and will remain invested for the long term

Slightly off-topic but the presentation for the main fund's AGM is on the website now. Different format from previous years with Jeff Randall as compere. Not as repetitive as usual either with the Q&A session covering different ground. Won;t spoil it but two questions sttod out: 1) Which one stock could you envisage holding for 50 years? 2) Which stock was the one you most regret NOT buying? Enjoy! hxxps://www.fundsmith.co.uk/tv

The last months factsheet is interesting: NAV up 4.5% while benchmark was down 1.7%. I think there is a real battle in emerging markets between the influence of trackers and underlying fundamentals. It is good to see a divergence from benchmarks and perhaps augers well.
