"Among our top contributors were Argenx, Atlassian and Global Payments Inc. (NYSE:GPN). Global Payments is a provider of payments technology solutions for merchants. Increased competition in the fintech sector has significantly reduced the company’s valuation over the past couple of years. However, we have stuck by the company while it shifted toward durable growth areas such as software and omnichannel commerce, and as it made substantial cloud investments to future-proof its underlying technology stack. Shares rallied after the company reported better-than-expected financial results and management increased its guidance for the year."
