  • Key facts

    The Managed Portfolio Trust is a ‘multi-manager’ portfolio, investing in trusts managed by different investment providers.

    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
    Unique capital structure - Net income in the Growth Portfolio is transferred to the Income Portfolio in exchange for the same amount of capital.  The transfer benefits the income prospects of the income shares and capital growth prospects of the growth shares.
    Experience and continuity - Fund manager Peter Hewitt has been a professional investor for 30 years and has been at the helm of the Trust since launch
    Flexibility - to help you meet your changing investment needs, there is an annual option to convert shares between the two portfolios. To learn more click here. 
    Cost effective - You can save monthly or via lump sums to suit your budget
    Regular Income - Dividends are payable quarterly on the Income Shares

  • Fund manager commentary

    October has proved to be another good month in terms of returns for global equity markets. Overall it could be said that apart from Spain the level of political noise, in terms of financial markets was at a diminished level. Similarly there were no nasty surprises from Central Banks with economic data continuing to be supportive, indicating continued momentum in global economic growth. Although the Bank of England has put up interest rates in the UK and the US appears to be on a gradual path of rate increases it does not appear Central Bank policy has reached an inflection point. The ECB is committed to quantitative easing until next September, albeit at reduced levels, whilst the Bank of Japan is seemingly stuck with aggressive QE in perpetuity. It may be the beginning of the end for the age of easy money but policy overall remains stimulative and is supportive of equity markets. Against this background the FTSE All Share Index rose by 1.9% whilst that of the FTSE Equity Investment Instruments Index gained 2.7% (all figures are total return).

    The Net Asset Value of the Growth Portfolio was ahead by 3.2% (also total return). Leading contributors were Henderson Opportunities Trust which rose 11%, Intermediate Capital Trust the private equity specialist, which announced very strong interim results and also gained 11% and Allianz Technology Trust which benefitted from a buoyant technology sector and rose 10%.
