    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

    The key driver to returns has once again been sterling. Over the past month, the currency extended its decline with a 6% fall against the dollar and a near 4% drop against the euro. This came after considerable weakness following the vote in the European Union referendum in late June. The impact is best measured by the returns of the S&P Composite Index in the US. In local currency they fell by 1.8% yet when translated into sterling this became a rise of 4.5% (both in total returns). A similar story could be seen in most other overseas markets. A continuing feature within the UK equity market has been the outperformance of the biggest companies (who are perceived to be the principal beneficiaries of a weak sterling). As measured by the FTSE 100 Index they gained just over 1% whilst the indices measuring the performance of medium sized and smaller companies both fell nearly 2%. Against this background the FTSE All Share Index rose by 0.6% whilst that of the FTSE Equity Investment Instruments Index gained 1.6% (both figures are total return).

    The Net Asset Value of the Growth portfolio rose by 0.9%, again in total return terms. The leading performers were all trusts with significant exposure overseas for example Baillie Gifford Japan +9%, Fidelity Asian Values +8.7% and Allianz Technology Trust +7%.

    As at 31 October 2016

  • The value of shares and the income from them is not guaranteed and can fall as well as rise due to stock market movements. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. When you sell your shares, you might get back less than you originally invested. If markets fall, gearing can magnify the negative impact on performance. Changes in rates of exchange may have an adverse effect on the value, price or income of investments. Emerging Markets, Unquoted Companies and Smaller companies carry a higher degree of risk and their value can be more sensitive to market movement; their shares may be less liquid and performance may be more volatile. The fund may invest in hedge funds or private equity funds which are not normally available to individual investors, exposing the fund to the performance, liquidity and valuation issues of these funds. Such funds typically have high minimum investment levels and may restrict or suspend redemptions or repayment to investors. The asset value of these shares and its prospects may be more difficult to assess.
