    Diversified - The multi-manager approach ensures a broad mix of holdings, including 'alternative' assets
    Choice - Investors can choose from income shares or growth shares, each with its own portfolio

  • Fund manager commentary

    In a global context the US was the focus of investor attention. The Federal Reserve continued its well flagged policy of gradually increasing interest rates by raising them 0.25% to 1.5%. In addition, the House of Representatives gave final approval to the wide ranging US tax reform which entails significant cuts in both personal taxation and corporate tax rates. As a result, estimates for growth in the world’s biggest economy over the next two years were raised. Estimates for US corporate earnings growth were also increased which is supportive for equity markets. The UK, which has been a relative laggard for most of 2017 had a strong month in terms of performance as investors responded positively to the news that the first phase of Brexit negotiations with the EU had made sufficient progress such that the second phase, discussions on a future trade deal could now take place. Against this background the FTSE All Share Index gained 4.8% whilst that of the FTSE Equity Investment Instruments Index rose by only 2.1% (all figures are total return). For once the overseas bias of the investment company sector acted against performance as illustrated by the MSCI AC World Index which rose by just 1.7 %.( also in total returns and adjusted for sterling)

    The Net Asset Value of the Growth Portfolio gained 1.2% (also in total returns) The principal factor behind the relative performance was a pullback in the shares of trusts specialising in the technology and biotechnology sectors.
