"Several investments in the technology sector were trimmed on valuation grounds with the proceeds used to increase our investment in Amazon. Amazon’s successful flywheel business model and Amazon Web Services are well known. However, we believe the current share price under‑appreciates:

  • The consistency and longevity of Amazon’s growth potential in its key businesses;

  • The importance of additional revenue streams such as advertising which are high margin and growing rapidly; and

  • The strengthening barriers to competition and competitive advantages arising from Amazon’s stepped‑up investment in logistics and other infrastructure."
