Increased Delinquencies and Currency Hedges Hurting Portfolio Performance for P2PGI

P2P Global Investments’ shares fell 20.7% on the London Stock Exchange in 2016; the fund’s portfolio manager Simon Champ provides some insight on the fund’s performance; the underlying assets reported a lower than expected 4.1% return due to increased delinquencies from loans at the midpoint of their duration; hedging costs have also been a factor with approximately 60% of US loans in the portfolio; as the investable market expands the fund is likely to increase its investment in European loans to help diversify away from currency risks.  Source
