  • 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

    For the first time in a while the US stock market was not at the forefront leading global equity markets higher. A combination of a well trailed increase in US interest rates by the Federal Reserve – a further two more rate rises are anticipated by markets this year – and an unexpected setback for the new President as his healthcare reforms failed to gain backing in the House of Representatives led to a setback in the equity market. There is concern that the much heralded plans for a large cut in US corporate taxes and a big increase in expenditure on infrastructure may be delayed or worse be side-lined. If that were to happen then the surge in US equity prices experienced since the Presidential election in November could be undermined. UK equities still managed to move ahead despite the official triggering of Article 50 which is the first step in the UK leaving the European Union. Against this background the FTSE All Share Index rose by 1.2% whilst that of the FTSE Equity Investment Instruments Index was ahead by 1.4% (both figures are total return).

    The Net Asset Value of the Growth portfolio rose by 1.1% (in total return terms). The leading performers were trusts specialising in European equities. Jupiter European Opportunities rose 9% and Henderson European Focus Trust was 8% higher.
